Tiredness after radical prostatectomy

Though awhile back, March 2014, within a few days after my surgery I was out walking, started slow but gradually increased distances, we're talking down to the mailbox to 1-3 miles. After the catheter came out, I asked my surgeon if I could start working out again, he said yes, albeit slowly build back up to my pre-surgery weights, swimming, elliptical...well,, I was at the gym the next day, fully intending to do a light workout...my friends were playing basketball, how could I not, so I did.

I would only add one word of caution, my doc (,..and my 3 nurse sisters) all suggested I wait for 4 ish weeks to be sure to avoid a hernia which can happen if you try to do too much after the surgery.
Once at that point though I worked my way back to pretty much normal workouts over the next several weeks.
