Will be saying prayers for you tomorrow...
I would just rest in the afternoon tomorrow...take some pain medicine and just sleep away...this will let your body recoup faster after anesthesia..
And just remember..if you haven't had this type of laparoscopic procedure before...there is some air/gas pressure you will feel in your abdomen as well as can go up in the shoulders and head area...so this will be more of the uncomfortable feeling you get that next evening until all the air is finally gone from your body...
So no worries if you don't feel up to posting until Wed...just know that we are all excited about the end to your pain from all of this!!! What a blessing!!
