I agree with the things everyone has said...
Sleep in a recliner, I couldn't lay flat, I sobbed when I tried.
No waistbands near incision, they will irritate it. Wear a gown.
Use the mesh panties and take home all the extra panties and pads from the hospital.
Keep up on the pain meds, you'll heal faster if your body isn't under stress from pain.
Have help the whole first two weeks, you need to spend your energy healing and nursing.
Get moving right away but take it easy, listen to your body.

Two things I can add is to get super sensitive baby wash for the shower, don't let any chemicals or harsh soaps or shampoos near your incision.
Wear a nursing bra, my nipples were sore and needed the pressure on them.
