Congrats to you. Doing great and keep it up.I'm ten weeks out of surgery. Mechinical valve. My diet is the same. I watch my consumption of alcohol, but that's a good idea anyway. I walk everyday and last week I walked 15000 steps one day and 18500 steps three days later. I am starting to rebuild my core with squats. Soon I will start jogging and light lifting. The goal is a 5K next year.
