I initially took 3 weeks off from work but because of a bacterial infection I'm off for another week till it clears up. As for chores ar home, after day 3 i was doing light projects that i never get a chance to do while working. Every day since day 3 i work on something and also either get on the treadmill or go for a walk for over an hour daily.

I think it helps you to recover quicker if you stay active.

I took three weeks off (I had a desk job - I'm now retired), but I could have gone back after two.

I took off 12 days but could have easily went back after a week. I have a desk job but I'm on my feet most of the day.

I have a desk job also and spend a lot of time on my feet. But honestly I think I could go back in two weeks too.

lol..not sure if it is strength and/or the fact that 1) I was under a huge deadline as well as 2) It helped me to stop thinking "when will this gas pain go away" after all other measures to rid myself of gas had been exhausted ;)

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
