Katherine, believe it or not this is normal. Look up "five stages of injury grief" - and be warned you can go through them several times.

Yes, you'll be stressed. And might take it out on your nearest and dearest. Might be worth apologising in advance ("I'm stressed and tired and in pain. Sorry, but I'm going to be crabby as well.")

Thank your husband when you can. Think about things you CAN do - e.g. chop vegetables while sitting down - so you feel a bit less helpless.

Vent on here - we've all been through it!
