I’m 8 weeks post op and down 60lbs . I’ve been walking since before surgery but I want to start lifting. I mentioned it to my surgeon and he was hesitant with the green light. I feel fine.
Just thought id ask and see what your surgeon may have recommended.

thanks so much!

Mine said "listen to your body" She told me I wasn't going to rip out my stomach because her work was that good. After 4 weeks I was back on full duty. I wasn't lifting"weights" per se' but I was doing physical labor. I have to admit I lost a ton of strength and was feeling . weak because I was overdoing it. I failed to hydrate enough, and still do . In short ...just listen to your body.

My instructions are strictly no lifting over 10 pounds for the first 8 weeks. I would think you should be fine now but your dr really should have told you yes or no.

it could tire you out really quickly and dont do anything too heavy but i started back with weights around week 7 or 8 and listen to your body! Even now my workouts are exhausting to me but i workout on average 6 times a week.

Congrats and fantastic weight loss.

Everyone’s surgeons’ instructions are different. None of us have the same release to lift time frame. Hope you get the professional green light soon.

I was not released to do cross fit for 5 months - Even today if i push it i can feel the tightness in my little belly, I would take your time and start out doing cardio - I was able to do that 4 weeks post op and just recently have moved on to cross fit =

Nothing to do with your post BUT I HATE CROSS FIT! but need to do it to tighten up! That was my vent for the day and i just got done with cross fit so I am crabby

im post op 2 months also. You don't want to rush extreme lifting though because i have a abdominal hernia from my daughters cesarean that happened 5 years ago because i went working too soon and lifted too much. I goto the gym now but im not bench pressing anything . I started a light workout with a weighted ball that was simply 10 pounds and i would sit on my butt and place the ball to the left , right , then back left again and it didn't strain anything. Everybody is different but just be on the safe side.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Has anyone had a gastric sleeve revision?

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
