In my practice, I generally suggest that my patients start walking and moving every hour following their surgical procedure. Strenuous activities should be avoided for 3-4 weeks. A light walk is okay 24 hours after surgery, but you will likely have drains that will be draining fluid and it is best to maintain adequate compression and bandages to ensure fluid does not leak all over hotel/home. You may carefully resume normal exercise 3 weeks after surgery, but please use common sense that if the activities cause pain or hurt, please stop. You will find your boundaries, do not push as this will only cause irregularities later down the road.
