Bob, just think. you will be in better shape post-surgery than before because you are now walking a lot. keep that up - it will benefit you in all ways. I think you will be fine when you return to work. are there things at home that you can catch up on? Jeff returned to work 2 weeks after surgery but has a sales position so he did a lot of driving and sitting. he should have gone back part-time because he would come home exhausted. try and enjoy this time off.....kat
