I started with 3 times a day up the block and back for 5 times. It took 7 days to get up to a mile twice a day. I bounced back quickly. I would walk, then get home, into the recliner and using the heat and massager spend an hour or so there. I feel that walking early did me the most good in quickening my recovery and lots of others here will say the same thing. We are all restricted in lifting, pulling, etc. so walking is one of the few activities we can do, and it really helps with pelvic floor toning and conditioning, which hastens continence recovery.
