How long after gastric bypass can I exercise?

Exercising is a must-have after gastric bypass. The truth is, on surgery day, when patients wake up, they are encouraged to get up and take a short walk. Day by day, the walking distance is lengthening. About 2 weeks after surgery, patients should introduce some other form of activity, e.g. swimming (of course with the surgeon’s approval), exercises, basic aerobics. Patients should start building their condition and stamina and once they feel ready, they may move on to weight training, jogging, cycling, or attend fitness classes. The main rule is to find such an activity that would bring entertainment and satisfaction.
