Stairs at 2 weeks

Does anyone know what the restrictions are for climbing stairs at the 2 week point?

Re: Stairs at 2 weeks

My doctor didn't really give me a time but she said to to go slow and hold onto the rail. I'm right at 2 weeks and have been going up and down for a few days, once or twice a day.

I'm not sure why there would be any restrictions on stairs. See how you feel when you try them. I have only 3 stairs at home, but out on walks at about 3 weeks, I made a point of using them to strengthen my leg muscles since I could not run.

It's okay for stairs but just take 1 step at a time and don't rush.

My doctor gave me the okay to do stairs at 2 weeks. He didn't want me doing them prior to that, however, I had an abdominal cut. The best thing really is to call your doctor and ask what is right for you.

Re: Stairs at 2 weeks

I had to climb stairs from day 3 post op as my bedroom is upstairs (I used my husband's shoulders for support). I didn't feel uncomfortable physically, I was more nervous about tripping. I have been walking up and down on my own since week 2. Like Zany 56, I have made a point of using them to build up strength post op (am now at week 5) and doing fine.

Good Luck

In my discharge instructions my doctor told me that I can climb stairs but don't overdo it.
