Thanks for the suggestions. I tend to get a little compulsive - now that I am an exerciser there is nothing that will stop me getting my daily dose. I can't sit because the incision is higher up but GREAT GREAT GREAT news - I can do my treadmill. So, I will just hamster it for a few weeks. By the way, the surgeon was a man with what he thought was a sense of humour - he made some joke about the incision being able to heal beautifully so I could get back into my bikini in no time flat. Inside, I thought, darn right pal. I will be in that bikini, actually I would probably feel naked and obscene in a bikini regardless of my size, but I will be a one piece then - in no time flat!!! And, to boot, I will be buff from all this exercise!! Thanks very much for your ideas....
