Hi Bill,

Good to hear from you, been a rough few months but sounds like the worst of it is behind you and you can work on getting back to "normal" whatever that is for a double whammy survivor. Take it slow and easy for the next week or so, drink plenty of water and walk as much as is comfortable, that really helps during the recovery phase.

Welcome back,

Gary

Bill-73,

You just had major surgery. This is not a marathon. Give it a few weeks before too much exercise.
