Default Hedgie not running after surgery

Hello! Our hedgehog recently had a hysterectomy 3 weeks ago. The first 10 days after the vet said she could do very little running/exercise, so we would take the wheel out before we went to bed. I caught her on it a few times and then she would run into her house (she hates being watched while running). After 10 days, we had the check up and the vet was very happy with her recovery. She had gained weight, she was eating, drinking, and pooping like she had before. This is a hedgehog that LOVED running in her wheel. She would run for hours before she had the surgery. Nothing has changed in our routine, same food, same wheel, same everything. I want to say it’s because the surgery wasn’t that long ago and I need to be patient, but the worried parent in me is saying something wrong! She’s about 3-4 years old, the doctor said she’s really healthy and she did really well through the surgery, but like I said, the worried parent in me thinks something is wrong. Has anyone had similar situations like this? Any advice?

I understand where your coming from, my boy loves running too. I would give him maybe another week as surgery can be very stressful for them even if they seem back to normal and if hes still not running after that I would consult your vet again.
