Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" I had my c-section last night at 9:35. This morning I had the catheter taken out and I got up, showered, ... [snip!] ... cough, laugh too hard, etc...It feels like my uterus is being stabbed and torn and kicked. When did this pain go away for you?"
Just keep moving. Walk as much as you can. The more you walk the less pain. I started walking right away. It was painful but not so much I couldn't function. Make sure to ask for some prune and apple juice, mix the two and pound as many as you can. The constipation will be much worse than the pain you are in right now!
If you keep moving, your pain should be tolorable tomorrow. I was making up the guest bed for my mom when my twins were 4 days old with no pain and with my son, I was out of the hospital on the second day going about my regular routine with the 2yr old twins and my son. Of course, you can't "over do it" or you will open the incision. However, you should be able to resume to semi normal activities.
