Reminds me of a story a friend told me. She had some kind of significant surgery. The doctor told her that she should/would be "up and about
in 24 hours." At 36 hours post-surgery she wasn't feeling too good, but taking the doctor's advice to heart, she went to a work-related meeting. She felt awful and was white like a ghost. She wondered why she was such a wimp that she wasn't doing better. When she saw the doctor next she related the foregoing and asked why her recovery was so slow. The doctor said: "When I said you would be up and about
, I meant that you would be able to go to the bathroom." Moral of the story: You have had major surgery and will be weak and tired for a considerable period. Don't fight it! Walk, but don't wear yourself out. (Actually, it will be really easy to wear yourself out.) If you feel weak as a limp rag, just lie down and rest!
