Welcome aboard Gumpenstein! Yeah you need to get in a routine of walking but not pushing a mower while you walk. I know we have been getting a lot of rain here in Florida and the grass grows quickly but get someone to do it for the first 6 weeks. You need to get cleared with your doctor before you do that or lifting heavy objects. You have had major surgery, take it easy if you want to stay out of the hospital.
Walk a little further after a couple of days. I am 1 year out and find I love to walk now at least a couple of miles a day. Good luck with your recovery and your first of many post-op PSA test. You will never get used to PSA anxiety.
