Amount of time to heal
I'm 60 years old, have a PM for one week, and already getting anxious to be active. I've heard anywhere from 4 weeks to 10 weeks to heal, which seems like quite a huge range. From what I gather from my doctor is that 4 weeks should be enough, but we need to be postive all secure. I'm trying to stay sane by thinking that I'd move slowly in some phased approach. Does it sound OK for cycling (road bike less) at around 4 weeks, running at 6 weeks, and surfing / swimming at maybe 8 weeks? All good at 10 weeks?

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
