2 weeks post op - exercise?
« on: May 01, 2019, 08:56:09 AM »
Hello all,

2 weeks post op today! Going to hop back on the stationary bike. Not vigorously but I want to get the blood flowing a bit - wise or should I avoid? Per my surgeon, mild cardio is OK at this point. I have been walking moderately almost daily.

I generally restrict exercise for one month post op.  Reason?  Any exercise can raise your blood pressure which in turn can result in some bleeding.  It can also result in continued swelling.  I tend to be conservative -- other surgeons may have a different point of view.
