I too have been searching without any results about how long wee are suppposed to be in recovery. I horseback ride and since it takes a bit of energy am worried about if it is ok to do it. I was originally told to just go out and pet and brush him, but of course I had to get on after a week and walk around a bit and then ended up trotting. This weekend, I did ride alot, so I wonder if there is anything I should worry about if I over do it???? I also have a job that requires heavy lifting of students that are wheelchair bound and even though we have a mechanical lift, we have to move them into it and position others on mats and then defy gravity and get them up. I was originally told to go on partial duty, but my job wouldn't let me come back with restrictions, so I asked if they could write I am fine which they did. I have had some pretty severe heart,chest pain that lasted for a while and some flutters, but nothing like I had before! For that I am so happy. I even feel as if I have more energy since I was exhausted all the time before! any help anyone can give me on the riding or work situation would be greatly appreciated. I called today and the nurse said she didn't hink riding was a good idea, but I have already done it>View Thread
