That calculation is set with weight maintenance in mind based on how your goals are set. Recovery from surgery and healing are energy demanding as well so the calculations don't seem too far off. You can monitor your weight to see how things are going. If you are eating in this range and maintaining your weight, you are on track. If you are seeing a slight gain (perhaps due to medications), you may want to adjust down by several hundred calories. Anything more drastic could limit your healing and recovery progress.
"Losing weight is not a goal; it is a result."
"Aim at a high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, nor the second and maybe not the third. Keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally, you will hit the bull's eye of success." Darke County Ohio native Annie Oakley's Motto
