I run daily and am wondering how soon after surgery I can get back to my regular active routine? What are the concerns of doing too much too soon?
The usual period of convalescence during which it is extremely important to keep activities to a minimum is the first two weeks following surgery. Increased activity raises your heart rate and blood pressure and can put you at a higher risk of bleeding. Even after this period, it is important to discuss with your surgeon if it is ok to return to regular activities.
