I am 11 weeks post op and would like to start exercising again.
I have been going on gentle walks but would like to start running and resistance training.
My doctor is a bit vague so is of little help in this area.
So I was wondering - when did you start exercising post op?

I had joined the gym at 3 months and was doing light aerobic exercise then joined a female only boot camp at 4 months. I just listened to my body and if it didn't feel normal, I didn't do it. In all honesty though the only thing I struggled with was sit ups.
I think it's really dependant on your Pre baby and pregnancy fitness. I was a lazy sod for my entire pregnancy and still felt ok when I started at 3 months post baby. Just make sure you listen to your body. If its not ready, you'll know.

I would go to a post natal exercise class run by physios if you have one in your area. I went to ante natal aqua classes and the physios who ran them strongly advised caution in the first 6 months of getting back into fitness but as a pp said it does relate to your pre- pregnancy and pregnancy fitness
