on December 3. My surgeon has a great reputation and I have
confidence in him. I will be in the hospital overnight
only unless there is complications.
I was given an exercise program to begin the day after surgery. It is structured for 42 days. In addition to
walking as much as you like. The instructions say to do 10
repetitions for each excercise. It says pain may increase
or be reproduced with each repetion and to always allow any
pain or stretch to resolve to your baseline level before
progressing to next repetition.
After the 6 weeks, a referral is made to PT.
Anyone else given an exercise program starting day following surgery?
