Exercise After Bariatric Surgery
After your bariatric surgery, you’ll need to stay committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and we’ll continue our commitment to you by encouraging you to regularly walk and stay active. These exercises after bariatric surgery are important, as they will help prevent blood clots that can form in your legs due to inactivity.
Although you may be inspired to elevate your activity—such as with an aerobic and weight training program—becoming more active than before will take time, especially if it has been years since you have performed at that level. After you are healed, exercise will be critical to maintain muscle mass and cardiovascular fitness. If you have any questions or concerns during your hospitalization or after discharge, you should contact your surgeon immediately. We have a support team available 24/7. You need to keep us informed so that we can take the proper steps to help you through your journey to a healthier you!
