Did anyone experience getting hot, sweating excessively, or short of breath when you started moving around again? I'm 55 and had ORIF surgery 3 weeks ago. My surgeon put me in a hard cast last week. I'm still under the NWB restrictions and am useing a knee walker to move about. I was happy to get it just to be able too get around easier. But I start getting hot, sweaty, and short of breath if I am moving around cooking, doing laundry etc. I don't have any history of heart ,BP, or pulmonary problems. Is this very common after surgery. I live in the South so it's been pretty hot as of late but I'm staying in with the A/C. I've not had any problems other than this since the surgery. No pain and very minimal discomfort. Stopped pain meds the day after surgery and not even taking ibuprofen - just an 81 mg aspirin a day.
