Vigorous exercise: I can't be 100% sure of what you are trying to get at so I am going to assume that someone was told not to do vigorous exercise following cardioversion. That being said, there is no formal guideline on this subject as far as i know. Your doctor decides what kind and how "vigorous" exercise can be after you are converted. I am used to patients being generally allowed to get back to business. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

WhenYourBodyTellsYou: Technically that operation is minimally invasive so you should bounce back pretty quickly. However, each individual is different. It took me a month to start bouncing back from a minor hernia repair. So wait a week or so then start slowly progressing and see how it goes each day. You'll know if you are careful. But don't push it hard for about a month. Just "listen to your body." It will tell you ...Read more
Finally feeling great again after having gallbladder removed via robotic surgery. When can I start exercising (ie zumba cardio etc)?
As tolerated: After laparoscopic removal of the gallbladder, whether or not the robot is used, I tell my patients to return to normal activity as tolerated by pain/discomfort at the incision sites. There might be mitigating circumstances, such as an umbilical hernia, so check with your surgeon to be sure. Glad you're feeling better! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had cataract surgery. Instructions say "resume normal activity" in 1 week. Doing landscape and deck work, dusty and strenuous. Wait longer than 1 wk?
Each doc is differen: Every ophthalmologist has their own time frame for strenuous activity after cataract surgery. A lot of that depends on if the cataract surgery was difficult or even had a complication or stitch. However, I am not aware of any evidence that gives a specific time frame that is safe. The best answer i can give is ask your surgeon because only he knows what went on on your individual surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is walking good if you had mitral valve repair surgery? Walking 15-20 min. As excercise good even after 2 weeks after surgery.
3-14 days: In general, if all the ports are 5mm, then you can resume activities whenever you're comfortable. If a larger port 10-12 mm was placed or had to be enlarged, then your surgeon will probably restrict you for 7-14 days. Prior to that a 10 pound lifting limit would be in order, and you should avoid mechanical exercise machines. . Good luck. ...Read more
Is it normal to return to normal volleyball practice after only 1 week recovery after lapparoscopic appendectomy?
Post Surgery: I always defer this question to the surgeon who performed the procedure and who will likely do a follow up examination. The surgeon knows what procedure was done, possible complications and how you are healing. Take care. ...Read more
Once healed then YES: In general, exercise is good for your cardiovascular health & help to maintain & restore circulatory function. It also minimizes the risk of blood blots & can help collateral circulation to develop. It is even one of the primary therapies for claudication. But you need to make sure that adequate healing occurs first so check with your vascular surgeon. Usually you can start back fairly quickly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: Obviously, scar revision/mole removal on the hand would require longer rest of the hand than the same surgery on the face. Also, if the scar/mole was quite large and the skin was pulled tightly, more rest is required than if a narrow scar / tiny mole was removed. Ask your surgeon so that he can give you an answer specific to your situation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
