I’m 2 weeks post surgery. As much as I try to not overextend my healing sternum, I have caught myself on rare occasion doing the wrong thing, like reaching for a cup on a high shelf or bracing with my arm(s). It hasn’t hurt at the time, but I wonder if I did enough to interfere with the healing process. For anyone who has done themself injury this way, did you know it when it happened? I feel like I’m making decent progress otherwise, even caught a nap in bed on my back today, so I don’t want to slow progress down.
