What is the recovery like for a tubal?

I recently had an emergency c section. Due to the religious views of the hospital, I gave birth at my dr could not do a tubal ligation at the time of birth. I have to go to an outpatient center to have it done. My recovery was rough from the c section, and I’m worried now about the tubal ligation and the recovery time. I have a newborn, toddler, and three school-age children. My husband works 60+ hours a week, and I’m a SAHM. I don’t want any more kids, so I’m just looking for tips/and insight on the procedure and recovery time.

He beat up two girlfriends, has charged for theft and intimidation, and a long history of drug use.

IDK what to do or say without hurting his feelings. I just don’t want him to end up ruining everything we’ve built together Anonymous Community …
