Yeah, I agree that was my initial reaction. All I had was a simple cyst on my scalp. They didnt even give me a full anthestic, just a local .
I may do that and call them. I called the surgeon's office before the surgery and I got a desk jockey who said yes 2 weeks. I have to call back for a follow up appointment 7 days post surgery. I need to that like today! When I do, I will go back and ask about what can i really do. I understand that they dont want me to do serious weightlifting but I dont see the harm in doing a light impact elliptical, or treadmill routine.
I have been doing a few things at work that are light impact already. I walk at lunch and I chose to do most of my desk work standing up not sitting down , several hours of it in fact. That really helps as well without being strenuous.
