I should add that I actually took my own panadol and nurofen to hospital... They don't like it when you do and try to take it away. But I'm an adult and I can manage my own drugs...and after the first days of waiting for the nurses to bring me medication, sometimes waiting for half hour I got sick of it, as it's important to take stuff before you get in pain. So I just kept my own and told them when I had taken some.
(on th Endone front, I only took a couple of doses because codeine based meds can give you constipation!)

Just don't tell them.
The hospital refused me panadol on day 3 and I had to walk myself to the chemist in agony, and had an infection in my wound.
Definitely take your own!
ETA I was so scared about doing my first poo that I made myself constipated and didn't go until day 8, total agony!

Oh thanks guys! Will put panadole on my list! With DD I was on endone so I know I can safely have that at least. I have no problems with being doped up this time. I was too much of a "hero" last time which didn't help my recovery.
I can't take the coloxyl stool softeners because they have milk in them (I can't have any allergens because of how sever DDs allergies were and DDs pead and allergist said if I want to BF avoid them all, I'm vegan anyway so doesn't matter this time..)
I may go see the chemist about something else I can use and take it with me.

Thongs for the shower and a light robe to just wrap around you becaus esometimes that's easier then bending down to try and put pants on without help.

I was on endone after my 3 c/s but make sure you keep the painkillers up and not let the nurses forgot about you which happens a lot.
I started taking Metamucil (not sure if you can take this) few weeks prior to your c/s it helps with your first bowel movement after.
