Tom, First of all, nice to meet you and welcome.
BUT what's with this "getting things done around the house" bit? June 3 surgery and you're talking about getting things done around the house!
While the robot, actually the laprascopic, surgery, makes blood loss less, energy higher, and surface healing easier than open surgery, inside the doctor has beat you up, big time. This isn't getting a tooth out, Tom.
Now, listen to Uncle Alf, call the doctor if not better in the morning, and then sleep, drink lots, walk a bit, drink more water, snooze, walk a little bit more, snooze, then go to bed. i.e. .... take it easy.
And, please keep posting and let us know how you're doing.
