    I've had same op and I am 15 weeks post op. I really wouldn't risk your repair, you are not allowed to push a Hoover until at least 12 weeks so I wouldn't even think about any sort of resistance training yet it's too early.

    I and a few people on here swim and walk, which is fine to do as its low impact, no jogging, jumping etc

    Sorry to say all this but you need to heal properly and not put yourself under any risk as nobody would want you to go through this again.

    Very best wishes Mik xx

      Omg  do not start that sort of excersize, I was with my surgeon Tuesday and have only been doing three walks round the block and she told me to stop one of them and slow down

      i had A&P 9 weeks ago

      take care of yourself and all the good work the surgeon has done for you

    Hi I had A&P 10 wks ago and was told it's ok to swim, cycle on flat and things like pirates or yoga as all low impact. Haven't tried any yet as still don't t feel ready but everyone heals suffer welt but I'd imagine resistance things are a no. X

      FI, I can't understand why some consultants say ok to use bike when you can't even Hoover? Surely if you can't hoover then a bike must be heavier, I don't think I could sit on a bike even at my stage in recovery.

      Take good care of yourself. Mik xx

      I think it must be coz with a Hoover you have the suction and resistance but on a bike as long as not going up hills there is no strain. I don't know I just asked if it was allowed and both consultant and physio said it was allowed. Mind at 10wks my vag still isn't ready for a bike seat. Haha. More healing first. So awimming it is for now.

      The thought of getting on a bike, even with a padded seat and squeezing myself into my sporty daughter's padded cycle shorts ( unlikely !) , is making my eyes cross atm !
