At almost 4 weeks, I'm wondering if is better to sit or lie down more because of the danger of clotting. Does anyone know? I spend alot of time sitting while on here but get up and walk around every once in a while. My calves have had some cramping and I'm becoming concerned. Thanks!!!

I wouldnt confine myself to being imobile ... exericse is part of healing . BUT obviously one should exercise some comon sense ... no lifting no jogging etc .. walking is fine but listening to your bodys signals is equally important .. mei

Hi nickjack,

I agree, exercise is part of healing. I'm only 3 days post-op, but my doctor told me I should try and get up and around the house a little 2-3 times a day. Actually yesterday I think I overdid it a little -- I was kinda stiff today.

I'd ask my doctor if I were you, just to be sure. But I'd always thought clots were more likely to happen in the beginning. I DON'T know for sure, however, so please don't take that as medical advice!

Ask your doctor! He/she will know what's best. And make sure you tell your doc about the pains in your calves, too.

Take care,

I had a tah/bso:
I do know that when I told my Dr I had to drive long distance for work, she said not to be sitting more thatn 2 hours without getting out of the car and walking because of the problem with potential blood clots- and I was 6 weeks post op when we discussed this.
When I sat to long at my desk ( went back to work in my home office 11 days post op)I would find that my stomach ached and it seemed that I put too much pressure on the incision area.
I had to take about 1/2 hr a day reclining and alot of walk breaks around the house. This lasted for about 3 weeks and then got better. I don't need to lie down now ( 7 weeks) but still feel some achiness from sittiing too long.
