    Just thought I would add my experience.

    I had my tubes clamped via keyhole surgery last week. I had no issues at all. Around my belly button was a bit tender that night and the next day but I didn't need any painkillers. By Day 3 there was just an occasional twinge with some movements. I had no shoulder pain at all, but my surgeon puts in a gas drain tube that is poking out of your belly button when you wake up and they pull it out before you go home - seems to have done the trick.

    I'm just bumping this up. My tubes are being tied Wednesday and I'll have the kids by myself Thursday and will have to drive the boys to Daycare on Friday. Going by the experiences here it will be the shoulder tip pain that will cause the most trouble? Ive got heat packs at the ready - any other experiences or tips appreciated [emoji1]

    I had mine done around a year and a half ago. I was in a moderate amount of pain that day/night and stayed in bed most of the next day, it wasn't terribly painful but if u were to over do it, it would be a different story I think.

    Honestly if I were you I'd be looking for someone to give u a hand with the kids at least for the day after the surgery.

    I was back to normal within about 3 days

    Thanks Jaycee. I'm planning to camp on the lounge room floor with the kids for the day. My DS1 who is 5 is planning to be my helper for the day

    Thanks I'm doing ok, a bit tender but no pain. Some mild shoulder ache overnight but all gone this morning! The hardest part is the emotional side, as much as I definitely don't want to have more children, the thought of that part of my life being officially and permanently over is making me a bit sad
