Swimming - 2 weeks post op

Recommended Posts

Random question I should have asked at my 2 week follow-up appt yesterday... I've been cleared to do all forms of exercise expect lifting weights or anything over 20 lbs but I didnt think to ask if swimming was okay at this point. I had gastric bypass done laparoscopically 2 weeks ago and all of my incisions are almost completely healed.... Is it safe for me to go swimming?

I asked the question and was told to wait until all my incisions were healed.  Wait just a while longer

Don't push your body. It needs to heal.

Personally, I'd stick with LOTS of walking for another week or two but you could put a call into your surgeon's office to check what their programme states.

Mine states 4 weeks before starting exercising proper although I couldn't start doing any other than walking until 6 weeks because I had a hernia repair at the same time as my WLS.
