so I'm a grand total of one week and a bit post op ( Nov 20th ), and I'm wondering what the timeframe is like to be able to get back into high impact, contact type sports? I know I will more than likely have to consult my surgeon but just curious if anyone has a rough idea??
thanks in advance for your answers!
OK so I assume you arent talking about sex here?...lol....just checking...
Likely 6 weeks....but yes you should check with your surgeons office and follow their recommendations
I golfed at 6 weeks....and really shouldn't have....too much pulling on my abdomen......but luckily I didn't do any damage......
I would think serious contact sports might take a little longer

no I'm not talking about sex hehe, I play basketball, flag football, floor hockey, etc,etc..
All can be quite competitive and rough. So I guess at least six weeks it is.

i go for my 1 month post-op this week and i know exercise will be a topic on the agenda. floor hockey is amazing, so is weight training. i remember asking this question during orientation (re. ice hockey) and the woman said 1 month. with the way i feel, i don't think 1 month would be enough. i am going to think 2 months. i will post a response after my appointment this week.
