1) don't exercise! Your doc isn't saying that to mess with your routine. You can ruin the surgery by doing so!!!! My uncle who also had cataract surgery was told he wasn't even allowed to lift anything for a couple weeks or fly anywhere because the pressure difference could basically make his eye pop -_-;
2) post-op, your body is using a lot of cellular repair machinery, and the operation itself has stressed your body as an organism. It will need calories to repair the damage and help you heal, so I wouldn't diet at the moment, either.
Yes, you might gain a few pounds. Yes, you might feel out of it or whatever. Is it worth ruining your eyesight?
I had a surprise mini op yesterday (I went in to make the apt, and the dermatologist had a hole an hour later so she laser removed this mole that I needed done before I flew out in Feb), real minor stuff but it has to scab over, so while I was advised not to let it tan for a while after the scab falls off, when I asked about exercise she said I can, but that it might make the resulting mark bigger... sooooo
no exercise for me as well; at least until the scab is nice and solid, so hopefully monday -_-;
Not the best feeling, but the scar's gonna mar my elbow forever, you know?
