My surgery was scheduled for a Tuesday, I was up and walking in my room by Wednesday afternoon, walking the halls on Thursday, and sent home on Saturday. The worst part was on Friday when they pulled the chest tubes out, that hurt the worst. No PT since I was up and walking on my own so quickly. I only lost around 7 pounds after my surgery, I was walking on my own, and went back to work after 7 weeks. Part boredom, part necessity.
