How soon can I exercise after gallbladder surgery?
Dear Ask The Doctor:
I will be having Gallbladder surgery and 2 weeks later i will be starting beginners yoga.. Will I be able to do yoga 2 weeks after Gallbladder surgery?
Answer:There are two methods of gallbladder removal, open surgery or laparoscopic surgery. If you are undergoing open surgery, you will need approximately 6-8 weeks to recover before taking part in any strenuous activity. On the under hand, if you are having laparoscopic surgery, your recovery time will be significantly shorter. I suggest waiting 3-4 weeks before starting any exercise routine.
