I would call your dr!!! However I am in my 4th week and I am going camping in the forest tomorrow!!! I did ask my dr and he said that as long as I was not lifting or hiking that I would be ok... Oh and I am staying in our travel trailer with no electric!!! Well we have battery power but the camp is rustic!!! I say go for it as it would be so much fun but you can't listen to me!!! I am no dr!!! Good luck, and call the dr or nurse and they should be able to tell you.
Take care

I am 8 days post op and am going camping this long weekend. I got clearance from my doctor and promised not to do anything but relax.

I have a motorhome and am only going 60 miles away. Both the Doc and his nurse said just becareful of the steps!! If I go out to relax, plan on staying out and when I go back in stay in a bit. They said you can tear stuff going up and down.

I would ask your doctor so he knows your plans, but mine was ok with it!!

Have fun if you go. I can't wait to get out of town. I sit here and look around and want to clean. (want to clean?) that can't be healthy LOL. So, if I am gone the laundry and dishes can't call to me!!

Take care!

If your DR says ok and you like camping it sounds like a good idea for you. As long as you trust your fellow campers to do the work like they say.

I love camping too and hope to get to go before returning to work.

I would be sure to have lots of water available to stay clean. I wouldn't go into a river or even a pool because of germs.

Have a good time!
