Re: Exercise after surgery

The nurses will get you up soon after your surgery to walk. My doctor told me I could walk around the block when I got home but I am a walker to begin with. He looked at me funny when I told him that around the block was one km. He then said not to overdo it. I did walk the one km the day after I got home but I did it so slowly, I am sure a turtle could have passed me! I kept it up every couple of days and it was 5 and half weeks before I was back to my usual 10 to 12 km daily. I listened to my body and as soon as the tummy started feeling heavy, I stopped. Everyone is different so the best thing to do is to listen to your body. If you aren't up to a walk outside, walk around in your house. I did laps around the kitchen when I wasn't outside.
