Don't try to rush out of the Hospital. It's better to stay there an extra day then to be readmitted with an issue. I had to readmitted once and it wasn't fun going through the ER, it was awful on a Saturday night in NYC.
Another time my surgeon was on vacation and they tried to release me but I wasn't feeling well and my family refused to take me home. The next day I ran a fever and they found abscess, I was held for another 5 days.
When I had my hip replaced last year I refused to leave when they wanted to discharge me because I didn't feel well enough. That night I started vomiting from Ileus, the next day the nurses and my surgeon commended me for listening to my body.
You'll be doing the same thing at home as what you're doing at the hospital, sleeping and laying in bed. It's better to do it at the hospital under medical supervision.
