I think that everyone heals at a different pace. My PC Surgery recovery was really fast, discharged at 2 days after open surgery. Walking a mile the the next day and completely dry in 8 weeks.
But I had By-pass surgery in 2005 and knew what to expect. Although I shocked everyone with the recovery from that surgery, too. I had 5 by-passes and was back at work in 5 weeks. Was walking 5 miles a day before I went back to work.
My advice would be to walk as much as you can. Both surgeons stressed that to me.
