Well, the first couple of days I just laid around the house not doing much. Second week I started doing a little more and the third week I was able to get out and walk around stores but my energy drained very quickly.
Now I'm able to go pretty much anywhere, although I still don't have all my energy back.
I guess it pretty much has to do with how healthy you are before surgery. I was in a horrible position because I wasn't eating much or even exercising much.
