Post Surgery Exercise

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

Patients are often are very eager to start exercising after they have weight loss surgery and that’s great – I encourage that. However, it’s important for them to remember that they cannot perform any strenuous exercises (meaning lifting weights greater than 20 pounds or running or doing sit-ups) for a period of 6 weeks. Once they’ve reached 6 weeks after surgery, they can go ahead and do any type of exercise that they want.
