Three days ago I had a large fibroid removed through

Patient

Q: Three days ago I had a large fibroid removed through a large abdominal incision (myomectomy). I just went home last night from hospital because the pain was manageable.

Last night I tried to sleep on my side and when I woke up the pain was excruciating and I had a hot flush and almost threw up after getting up to pee.

A few hours later and I'm fine again.

My question is did I do any further damage? Was the pain due to sleeping on my side? And should I go back to the hospital?

Symptoms:  Pain, nausea,
