How long before I can get back to exercise after laparoscopic hernia repair surgery?

As tolerated . I tell my patients to return to usual activity as treated by pain and discomfort. Just listen to your body and use common sense and you'll be fine. As always however, there may be features unique to your case, and you should check with your surgeon. Good luck!
Start easy. Check with your own surgeon. But in general, gradually increase lighter activities such as walking or treadmill for first few weeks. Swimming good when alright with yoir surgeon. Usually wait 4-6 weeks before doing heavier or strenuous exercises.
