    I tore some internal stitching lifting my pram out of the car at 5wks post-op. Ended up with a massive haematoma that became infected and now my scar is horrible.

    oh my gosh, that sounds horrific.

    please all disregard my stupidity at lifting my pram at 3 weeks. I'm bloody lucky I didn't do any damage!!

    It was the downside to feeling great and thinking I was experiencing the dream recovery.

    I waited until my 6 week check before I did any pram lifting or start actually walking. I did walk to my local iga a few times from home out of necessity though.

    It's temping when you feel ok to do stuff but I'd def wait for the 6 week checkup and even then see how you feel.

    I thought I was fine and drove at 4 weeks because my DP headed off for a 4 week fifo stint and lifted the pram in the car and was then in agony for days, I was lucky not to do much damage. I'd wait personally, even though you feel ok, i did, you forget it's major surgery.
