I've had four abdominal surgeries and they are very difficult to recover from. I understand the feeling of wanting to jump back into things, but that will only set you back in your recovery. Your body is busy healing those cuts and doesn't have a lot of extra energy for moving around. Take it slow.
Take this opportunity to do things you haven't had time to do before. Read a few books you've always wanted to read. Watch a few old movies. Do some sort of online class - there's lots out there for free. When you're tired, sleep. Remember that it's all about the healing. Take care.
