How Soon Until You Can Exercise?



Recommended Posts

Usually 6 weeks. Just like any other major surgery!

I could walk right away. I was cleared to do most things at four weeks (except for weights). I had to wait eight weeks for weights. But like toodlerue said, that's pretty standard for any major surgery. I had similar restrictions when I had plastic surgery, too.

Walking approved since surgery day. Other stuff depends on incisions. Some of mine reopen

it was 6 weeks until i could do any heavy lifting, but walking was a-okay after surgery.. I didnt follow the rule for heavy lifting closer to the 4 week mark.. but only bc i had forgotten.
