Sarahp2222, welcome back :D, sometimes the throat hurts for a bit after you get the tube in, but drink plenty of water and some lozenges will help.
See how easy the procedure was, nothing to worry about. Many people, gets apprehensive on their first BM Image, but most of the time is not as bad.
Follow your post op instructions if your doctor or nurse gave you some and just let nature take over.
All you can do now is to rest so healing be fast.

Hey Sarahp
Looks like you made it out "alive" from the surgery, and thats good news. Sure; that awful pain right after the surgery is quite the norm as other will tell you.
Sarah, sitz baths (just fill tub to a few inches to cover entire bottom) may be ideal for you although regular bathing should also bring you some much needed relief, so do not be afraid to bathe. (use salt in the bath if okayed by DR.)
Remember to take in the extra water and or lax's to keep from getting constipated from the pain meds.

You have to try this Sarahp. It will lessen and ease the pain and promote healing all at the same time. Your Dr. did not mention this to you?
