Post-LEEP activities

So, I know that sex is a no-go for six weeks after the procedure, that I shouldn't use tampons, do any heavy lifting or take hot baths for a period of time as well.

How about working out?
How about swimming? In a pool? In the ocean?
Are there other activities I should avoid?
Activities that I should do?
Diet changes?

Re: Post-LEEP activities

hot baths? i wasnt todl that one...i had a warm bath today to ease my cramps (its just like period pains really).

i wouldnt swim...but not cos i was told not too...because you havce a discharge for 3-4 weeks and cant wear tampons, so i'd be worried of staining my swimwear and someone noticing. not taht my discharge has been heavy to dat e(only on day two tho since the leep).

i've been advised no strenuous activity basically until teh pain heals.

and in order to judge the no sex and tampons, go off when the discharge finishes (as evertyones different).
