I had that same back pain, too, except it lasted more like 12 hours. That was honestly the worst part. A couple times I got some chest pains too from the gas settling in my body.

And stay there but the damned nurses would wake me up....grrr... I stayed in the hospital for 2 nights. I'm glad to hear everything went good with you, congratulations and welcome to the other side! =)..
