How do you know that you should not lift over 25lbs? You have not had surgery yet?

@annejam No, I have not had surgery for repair of the aneurysm. My cardio told me to limit what I lift. I am sure the 25 lb limit is conservative and I am sure I occasionally lift more such as lifting my suitcase off the rack before proceeding to roll it where I need it to be. I am just careful to stay in the general range of 25 lbs.
