I had laparoscopic gall bladder surgery on 10/2. I went for a five mile ride on Oct 11. My wife thinks I am doing too much to quickly. I don't have a follow up visit with the doctor until 10/18. I am not suppose to lift more than 20 pounds. My bike weighs less than that. If just just stick to spinning easy gears I don't see any problems other than I tire quickly right now. Has anybody else gone through this surgery? How long did it take to get to 100%. Thanks.
I had my appendix taken out back in March. It was done laparoscopicly and I was able to ride my bike a week after. I wasn't able to push for about a month but if I kept the gears low and the cadence high I was fine. It is more a personal feeling. If there isnt any pain you are good but if there is I would wait another week.
I've heard about people playing volleyball the next day, but after I had laparoscopy (for something else) a few years ago, it was about a week before I felt okay enough to do anything. I had a lot of pain from being puffed up with air. Then I went back to the gym and injured my shoulder which f'ed it up for two years.
I had major abdominal surgery, part of which was gall bladder removal. At the time I was swimming regularly rather than cycling, but after a week in hospital, a week of recovery at home (mind you I was walking further every day), I was back swimming a km in the pool. My surgery was not laparoscopic, I've got an 8 inch scar across my middle but my surgeon basically said do whatever you feel comfortable doing. If it hurts STOP!
