quick question

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I was banded on Oct. 23rd and I was wondering how long after sugery before you can start excersizing. I was told that I should wait until the full 21 days but I'm wondering if I can go sooner, like tomorrow and walk on the treadmill maybe on a slight incline, no abs of course, lol. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Congratulations on your surgery! Go by what your doc says and start exercising after 21 days. That gives your body time to heal. Walking is a fantastic form of exercise and just what you need for now. I was impatient and tried exercising 1 week post op and it wasn't pleasant--it hurt! I felt pressure on my port area and I was afraid of hurting my band, so I quit until after my 21 days. Now, 3 months post-op, I'm running everyday (up to 10 miles) and going to the gym. Planning a half-marathon in January.

Good Luck!
