Post Exercise after colectomy?

I just went through a total colectomy exactly a month ago. How long should I wait before I do any excercise aside from walking? I am especially curious about how long to wait before I do any abdominal excercise. Thanks for any and all replies.....

Probably best to talk with your doctor's office because it depends on how strenuously the exercise works your abdominal muscles, you general condition before surgery, etc.

As a minimum, though, I would say two more weeks before putting much excess pressure on them.

Good luck!
