Let me be very clear that I'm going to rest the first couple of weeks after surgery and do my PT exercises faithfully! I am NOT going to overdo it and mess up my recovery. That said, I'm curious to know if anyone had upper body exercises for their PT to help strengthen muscles for crutches or canes. For those of you who enjoy working out, how soon were you cleared to do upper body exercises with light weights? I'm assuming being able to do pushups again will be a few months down the road.
