Is it safe to exercise. 6 weeks post op. 600 to 700 calories per day. Mostly Protein. Can our bodies take exercise with the low calories we are having. I don't want to break muscle. Any advice xx

YES! Get moving! My doc said 10,000 steps a day to start. I was doing that by day 7 post op. Start walking, walking, walking. You can't do any weights yet, but you can do leg exercises, arm exercises, and climb stairs.

I could do pretty much everything except weights at that point (I think I had to wait eight weeks before doing weights)

I do spin and weights ... To make sure you do not burn muscle just make sure you have a Protein Drink after working out.
