In brief: Roll to the side
Your abdominal muscles can be very sore for a few weeks after a hysterectomy.
One way to sit up is to first roll to the side and then use your arms to press yourself up. This takes pressure off your abdominal muscles.

In brief: Varies
One way to arise from lying, without using the abdominal muscles as musk is to roll onto one side and push up sideways.
Generally, however is not painful is ok.
