Squats and lunges...too soon?

I know I'm not supposed to work out just yet at 2 weeks post op, something about sweating? (whoops went into the steam shower twice this week) but do u think It would be okay to just do walking lunges and normal squats? I obviously won't do jump squats or squat jacks, but what about plain old fashion stationary squats no dumbbells?? And maybe some wall sits too!
Thanks in advance!

You should not do anything that will raise your heart rate. This can cause bleeding complications like a hemotoma. I would skip the workouts and follow your surgeon's directions. It's not worth the possible complication. There is still a lot of healing going on in your body even if you feel better.

I wasn't permitted to do anything that would raise my heart rate for 4 weeks post-op. I've heard some ladies having to wait 6 weeks. Your body is still healing for surgery. Is it worth risking a possible complication? Rest. Relax. Take it easy. How often in life do we have the excuse to do NOTHING.

My PS said very light activity like walking 2 mph at 2 weeks. Other lower body and abs at 4 weeks and cleared me for yoga and most other types of exercise except direct chest exercises (like push-ups) at 6 weeks.

I started (slowly) walking a half a mile on day 2 and now I'm doing a pretty good (walking) pace 2 mile. My ps said I could start lower body workouts at 3 weeks post op. I will be on the bike starting Wednesday! I feel your pain. It's hard to just sit around, feeling like a bum, and losing muscle that I worked so hard to build! Can't wait to get back to ab workouts!!

My ps had me wait 4 weeks for light ex 6 weeks for mod to heavy cardio and lower legs. Wants me to hold off on abs (secondary to pulling on crease incisions) and weight lifting. My thoughts are he is the expert and I paid alot of $$, so to avoid complications il follow his instructions. If you are going bonkers from inactivity, try going for walks. I know its not very challenging, but better safe than sorry!

Not working out is hard for me too....I feel your pain and anxiety about it! I feel like my muscles are deteriorating by the minute...lol. And, I haven't been eating THAT bad, but not the healthiest either...so I feel like the pounds are packing back on! But, I know that we do not want to cause any complications....we WILL get to work out soon...and we WILL return to normal! And, the weight and muscle thing is mostly in our heads anyway. Sometimes taking a break from the strenuous workouts will intensify them once we return and get better, faster results....that's what I'm telling myself anyway to get through this! LOL. Good luck girlie!!

At my 5 day post-op my PS said it would be okay to do light weights and lower body work out, he just said no kettle bells and no jogging (or anything intense like that). But, I've been taking it easy going on 4 weeks now (just lots of walking and errand running the house chores). Sadly, I lost 2lbs of muscles .

I'm curious... what type of incision did you girls have? My surgery isn't until Dec. 2nd. But I'm planning on getting the transaxillary incision (through the armpits), and my doctor said I would be cleared for any type of activity by the 3rd/4th day as long as I felt up to it. Is that normal? Has anyone else had the armpit incision?

First post btw

I went running my usual 10km 2 weeks post op! But don't use me as an example, I suspect I healed much faster than average.

Anyway if you should really work out, please do clean your pespiration from your incision area thoroughly after that. Else you will be very prone to infection. What I did was to cover my incisions with waterproof dressing (Opsite from Smith and Nephew) when I take a shower. After the shower, I would remove the waterproof dressing and use sterile alcohol to clean any sweat or grime from the incisions, and let the incisions air dry.

Hope that you will be able to get back to exercising soon! I can totally understand how much you would be itching for a pheromone pump, especially if you exercise often.
