When to start going to the gym?

It should be in the paperwork somewhere, or you can call the surgeon's office. Mine was 10 pounds for four weeks and then no weight restriction afterwards, no gym restrictions after four weeks either.

I'd wait another two weeks but maybe you should call your surgeon's office to be sure.

Check with surgeon.
I was cleared at 2 weeks which I thought was crazy. She said if something hurts then stop doing it.
I still stayed away from gym and my trainer until week 7.
I did do some easy DVD workouts, walking, and a little bit of resistance bands at home starting about week 4.

Well ty all for your feedback, i just got back from an appointment qith my surgeon and nutriologist, they said i can start going to the gym, but they dont want me doing exercises that are dead weight or squats with weight, they told me i can do any exercise as long as it involves a "bench"
