I'm 7 weeks on from having stents put in and am just looking ahead re my fitness plan. How long did anyone else take to return to jogging? I only intend to do a little just to add interest to my walking. How soon can one convert a "fast-as-my-legs-can-go" walk into a gentle jog?
I know everyone is different - and it's like asking how long is a piece of string - but I would love to hear anyone else's experience.
Re: Has anyone been jogging after stents? How soon?
I HATE jogging, but I was back on the stationary bike a week after the stent. I could have done it earlier but I didn't want to reopen the femoral artey and spray paint the gym RED!
HAd to wear sweat pants because my groin, leg, and belly were PURPLE, BLUE, GREEN, and black from the bruising and the PLAVIX! I didn't want anyone to vomit...and I showered at home!
