Hey guys I’m 16 days post op and just wondering if anyone was told they could start doing cardio exercises at two weeks? And when were you approved to work out?

I was cleared at 2 weeks to cycle as long as it was no more than ten miles and on flat roads. I was cycling by 30 days over 25 miles + a day.

Ok great. That means some walking or elliptical time would be ok. Thank you

I'm 3 weeks post op and my program cleared me for "exercise" at 2 weeks post-op. The surgeon suggests AND recommends just doing brisk walking or elliptical, but nothing too strenuous until 4-6 weeks. Remember your calorie intake is pretty low and your body probably not used to it yet so don't go crazy. I walk 45 to 60 minutes on the treadmill every morning and I've done well with that until he tells me I can do more.

BUT....I would call the surgeon's office and ask anyways, just to be sure.

My doctor told me that I could start exercising right away. I couldn't do a lot, but I did take laps around my apartment building with my dog the day I got home from surgery.

I was required to start walking as much as possible immediately after surgery. As soon as I could, I got up to at least 30mn/day. When I went back to work 3 weeks after surgery, I started doing at least 30 mn on the treamill. I'm hoping to get cleared for real exercise at my 6 week appointment next week.

Yes I’m excited to go exercising I had some weight drop pretty fast and I’m just ready to see what I can push my body to do! But I’m also still lazy do there’s that lol and this not working thing is not helping.

Thank you ☺️ You’re right honestly bringing the groceries in the other day after walking around the grocery store for an hour felt like a lot for me I got super nauseous And winded. I think easing in is a good idea. At least for me

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
