Having the drains out is definitely a relief, you finally feel like you have a little more freedom lol. And I was on the toilet for close to 3 hours off and on during my first bowel movement, so I feel your pain. Just take your time with the sitting. Make sure you're using the cushion, too. I did a lot of laying on my side just to switch it up, so that I wasn't stuck on my stomach all the time. It gets better!
