So, I should do the following:
1. Request pain relief for my rabbit (What if the vet insists they arent needed?)
2. Place the cage where rabbit resides next to my radiator. Not close to it.
3. Restrict her movement, do you mean I have to cage her for 4 whole days? I mean.. Our cage has a door where the rabbit must jump through it, or orthewise “unlock” the cage so she doesnt have to make a slight high jump.
4. Is it possible to lift her or something?
5. Is petting good idea?
6. If she wont eat in morning (After the surgery, the next day), do I have to soft the pellets by filling the bowl with water? (Afterwards, remove the water, same tactic I used when she first time lost her tooth).
7. If she still wont eat, bring her to vet?
8. Priority: Food > Poop > Water> Wee?

What if my rabbit decides to try chew away the stitches?

1) They should provide you with some if you ask.

2) I did that, worked well.

3) She can have a small pen so she isn’t caged 24/7.

4) I wouldn’t lift/pick her up.

5) Petting is fine but don’t overwhelm her. Pet her if she likes it, otherwise leave her be. 

6) Either use critical care which you can get from the vet or just mash pellets with water to make a kind of paste. 

7) You’ll have to force feed if she won’t eat by herself. A vet might be able to give can injection to encourage appetite – they did for my Peanut. 

8) They’re all important so keep an eye on all. Have her favourite foods on hand such as veggies and treats. If she won’t drink much you can just soak her veggies.
