best exercises and ones to avoid after surgery
My first post, but i have been reading the forum for awhile and it certainly helped getting ready for surgery and understanding risks and options. Many thanks to all who have posted here.
I am now 10 weeks post op, Desarda, and am ready for more aggressive recovery exercises, I have been walking everyday since the day of surgery probably around 5 miles a day spread over a couple/three walks. Healing ridge much diminished, still gets sore when I push to hard or lift heavier items.
My old exercise was rowing machine and taichi. I am fearful of the rowing and have read a few negative reports on the web about starting back to soon, so i put rowing on hold for a few more months. So my question is what to do that will promote healing, get me back in shape and not hurt the repair. I am thinking bicycle and swimming, neither are my favorites. Also thinking about yoga and/or pilates for stretch and strengthen. I restarted taichi about 3 weeks after surgery.
Any real world experience with these exercises or others of more value would be greatly appreciated.
