Self-propelled regular mowers. No riding mowers - according to our surgeon, no bouncing around to jar up those internal cuts and stuff. And I think we did enough of that on the 5-hour drive home two days after surgery.
They do get antsy! One day after the all clear - it was out to mow the yard and then to Home Depot to pick up landscape pavers to start building a new wall. Those are daily trips, now, 20 pavers at a time. And, first, he has to dig into red clay! (Not to mention he does have a pre-existing hernia - yikes.)
Thank goodness for sports networks or he wouldn't have stayed down at all.
