I should have identified it when I posted, but I didn't remember how to spell the name of it and I didn't take the time to look it up.
Today, however, I am taking time for everything. I have had to discontinue all aspirin or other NSAIDS, and as a result, I hurt. All the walking and stationary biking and core strengthening I have been doing have left me stiff and sore now that the anti-inflammatory drugs have been discontinued.
With two days left before surgery, I am now practicing to slow down. For me that's not so easy.
