Can you walk after thoracic surgery?

The ability to walk after thoracic surgery may vary depending on the specific procedure, the individual’s overall health, and the extent of the surgery. In some cases, walking may be encouraged and recommended as soon as possible after surgery to promote circulation and aid in recovery. However, it is important to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and guidance regarding physical activity after thoracic surgery to ensure a safe and healthy recovery process.
