Two weeks out is still VERY early and if your body is telling you that sitting through a movie is too difficult, you should probably pay attention. Exhausting yourself walking to and from the car is not as beneficial as smaller walks.

It's a normal impulse - once your old pain is gone, you want to resume your 'normal' life as soon as possible, even before your body is ready. We've all paid the price of pushing too hard and for the most part, did no real harm. However, that doesn't mean it's not possible to hurt yourself and though I may be more cautious than most, everyone who has been through this surgery agrees on one thing SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE.

Be kind to your new back and let it get used to itself, Dale
