Bit of pain getting up and down but dressed and ready to go home. Can drive tomorrow and no heavy lifting for 2 weeks, just walking. Hopefully by the weekend I'll have no soreness.

Sounds way better than mine. I don't think I surfed for 6 weeks.

Unless I'm feeling 100% at 2 weeks I'll still probably wait a full month. I've pushed too hard before and it ended up costing me more time. That's way worse than just waiting that extra few weeks

Managed a 5km walk this morning, less than 48hrs post op. Still tender but going good.

It's amazing how far surgery has come in such a short time. One of my work colleagues had some keyhole heart surgery done, and was back at work within the week!

Good news for you Beery

A week for heart surgery, damn!. Still a bit tender but coming good. Another week and I expect it'll be pretty damn good

In the 1980s/1990s my father in law had open heart surgery 3 times to replace blocked arteries, months of recovery etc

Now they just shove stents in to keep the arteries open. He is 84 or thereabouts and they gave him one just last year, overnight stay. I think that was his 3rd or 4th. No way could he have survived major surgery but for a stent, no problem.

As an aside, he made it to 84 (and beyond) despite basically having had a heart that didn’t work properly for the last 30 years. Being kept alive by medical advances is pretty amazing

Bout 10 days now. The weird feeling of something in your stomach is gone, not really pain, but when I moved I could feel it. Only minor issue is bruising around the incisions, and the incisions themselves are a bit tender to touch. The bigger one just under my belly button is probably an inch across, and is the most tender. No doubt it'll give me some grief when I lay on a board but no big deal.

Technically on Monday I can go back to weights. Looking forward to that but I'm in no rush to go heavy just yet. Need to get my fitness up so will go back to boxing and see how I go, and fa faaarks sake I might even get a wave next week :) that'd be good.

See the surgeon next Friday for the follow up. I expect to go back to work after that.
