Welcome back! Sorry to hear about your horrendous ordeal! At least things seem to be on the mend (hopefully anyway!) Any idea when you plan to return "full-speed!"?

Hope you are not in too much pain - being a doctor hopefully you are getting the adequate pain relief.

Take it easy and we hope to have you back "fully" soon!

I think one of the most important things about reducing post-op pain is to take enough analgesia in the earliest days to enable you to get mobile and back to normal household tasks asap, and within days the pain drops to much more minor levels . And even pulling out weeds is as useful and less boring than doing fancy physio exercises !
