You're PS would be the best person to talk to about that. But the secret is, if it hurts don't do it. I'd give it at least a week before getting back into walking.

I do a lot of walking and asked this question last week, and was advised no problem at all with walking - if you have no pain it will do you no harm.

I just had surgery last Thursday, and will give it a few days, then build up gradually.
Took the plunge and had consultation with Dr. Karidis 7th January 2009.
Surgery 26th February 2009.
Just wish I'd been able to do this years ago.

here is what I did:

After op - rested and walked around house. A few days after walked around block.

After week 1 - returned to regular activities like work

After week 3 - began light cardio , light weights

After week 4 - returned to gym. Reduced intensity work outs

After week 5 - back to normal work out routine (cardio and weights)

I had the surgery on a Sat. Returned to work that Monday. I returned to the gym exactly 2 weeks after the surgery, but avoided chest and anything that stretched my chest.
