Thanks for the feedback! I'm trying to push myself yet safely.
This question for all who want to respond please:
How easy am I supposed to go?
I'm walking briskly every 45 minutes for 10 minutes or so.
I'm dancing/grooving to the music every hour or two for 5 mins or so without any fast or major stretching motions.
I get up from a chair in about 10 seconds, for the most part using mostly my arms initially for support and gently using my core to stand up straight
The heaviest thing I'm lifting is prob either the Brita water container or a 16 oz glass.
Does that sound perfectly fine for 5 days post? Am I allowed to stand up straight? I was only glued shut (no stitches or staples on my exterior) so I'm nervous and careful of breaking that open if i were to go from 75% posture to 100% -- was mostly thinking of waiting an extra few days before I try.

You also don't have a temp ileostomy so you can probably do things that many of us couldn't because you didn't have a hole in your abdomen.
