My doctor said nothing about walking but I try to walk at least a mile but if weather permits two miles a day and I think it really helps maybe most in the countenance area. If I have too I go to our small walmart and make a few laps around it.

Good job Randy!
My mantra to all of the newcomers is walking as much as you time allows. I was walking over a mile with the catheter still in. As soon as it came out I increased until two weeks later I was hiking at Zion National park every weekend up to 11 miles a day. And yup. No Continance issues.

Tony I think it was an old post of yours that I read before surgery that got me walking in the hospital of which I made many laps up and down the hallway. LOL I measured my house and figured home many monotonous trips it took to make a mile. I found it very difficult to walk much with the catherter but I did the best I could. After it came out, I got to a mile in a few days but it took a few more to get to two.

I hope this information helps someone else.
