They normally give you a bunch of prescriptions for pain management when you leave. My advice is to fill them before you're discharged and to try to leave right after the pain med dose. Car rides can be rough.
Things I've learned about taking the pills -- don't fight it, you'll make yourself miserable and stressed out for no reason. You'll heal quicker if you don't feel like you have a gaping stomach boo-boo and sleep better too. I also had a hard time getting in and out of bed. I slept on the couch the first couple of days with my first c-section.
You will notice within the next couple of days that it doesn't hurt so much to walk around, but it takes time. I always ended up having at least one day where I thought I could just tough it out and ended up in tears curled up into a ball praying for the meds to work quickly. <--- don't do that. lol
By the end of the first 2 weeks, you'll be able to move around a lot more, almost like normal. I can imagine how exciting it is going to be to finally be home after so long.
