Your recovery will depend on a lot of factors: Age, physical conditioning, body reaction to the surgery, etc. It's good that you have that positive attitude, and want to get back to normal asap. You must be careful however, and temper your enthusiasm with good common sense. I may be the "2006 Poster Boy" for bad judgement when it comes to doing excessive activities before being properly healed. The consequences were severe, and set my recovery back 6 months + 2 additional surgeries. All because of poor judgement, foolishness if you will, and it was totally avoidable.
So my advice is take your doctor's warnings to heart, and be patient. You will heal quick enough. Most of the guys were able to get back to work within a month at least on a light schedule. I wish you good luck, and a speedy recovery.
