    Default ONE month “exercise” question

    It has been a month so I went to the Y the other night and thought I would just walk for a while. I have not done any real amounts of exercise as I have had a rough time. I walked for 45 mins and my upper abdomen started hurting quite a bit so I stopped. I was a little disappointed that I could not do more but I let my body guide me. It has been 2 days since then and my abdomen is still pretty sore. Does that seem normal to everyone? I am not worried it just seemed slightly odd to me. Thanks in advance.

    Walking for 45 mins 1 month after major surgery after not doing much exercise over that month is quite ambitious. :-)
    I'm not sure I was walking that much after a month and I started walking the day I got home and built up the time/distance over a period of time.
    I'm glad you listened to your body and stopped.
    Maybe build up slowly for a while? If you are still sore you should talk to your surgeon just to make sure everything is ok.

    Don't go from nothing to 45 minutes of exercise, you have to work up your time/distance gradually or you will hurt or be in pain! Baby steps.

    I was cleared for all exercise at 2 weeks. I was a walker, even when fat, but I still had to take it slow in the beginning. I started with a walk around my block once a day. Be careful, I even got a little dizzy occasionally those first walks. But then after 5 years I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, so anything is possible!

    I've kept a journal since surgery so went back to check it. I was doing 60 minutes @ 3mph on the treadmill at day 11. However (and it's a big HOWEVER), keep in mind I was doing 60 minutes @ 4-4.5mph on a daily basis before surgery as well as resistance exercise in the pool almost daily and golfing twice a week. That said, you've got to work up to things. No pain no gain does not apply in the first several weeks after surgery. I was back in the pool as soon as I was cleared by the doctor (about two weeks) and started off doing half the reps I did before surgery, gradually working my way back up. I didn't return to golf for three months as I simply didn't have the energy to do it.

    I’m impressed you could walk that much without passing out! When I started working out after surgery I couldn’t make it more than 10-15 minutes without having to sit down because I thought I was gonna black out.
