Good for her!
My mom doesn't do any special fitness stuff, but she amazed me that only a few weeks after a hysterectomy she was moving the furniture in her house around so she could vacuum. After my own hysterectomy, I couldn't push a vacuum without pain after 7 weeks. She also went for a 6 mile hike after double knee replacement surgery. She's not even a hiker normally.
Female, 5'3", 50, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
