I was out walking the dog after 2 weeks, but it is a very painful operation. There is no way you'll be running in 2 weeks but if you take things easy and just build up gradually you'll be fine. I didn't run until 5 weeks but you don't lose too much fitness and was back hitting times after about 8 weeks. Don't wanna put you off but the first week after the op is agony, take every painkiller they offer you and stock up on All Bran . I got really down in the dumps about it at the time, but now I'm glad I had it done, and I can cough and sneeze pain free! If you have any questions feel free to message me. There are also a couple of videos of the op on YouTube that are quite 'interesting'
