That’s the way to do it. A little test here, another test there, of trying new things. When I was at your stage, and even a few months past, if I had a day that I shopped or bowled (after 3 months) I took the next day off and rested a lot, if I could. Sometimes you have to go somewhere every day, but I tried to plan it so I could rest after a more active day. I can’t remember how far post op I was, but I shopped at Walmart, which is always a lot of walking even with a short list, I vacuumed 2 rooms when I got home and bowled that afternoon and learned all that in one day was not in my best interest. “But it felt so good at the time” are famous last words.
