What You Should Know About Exercise after Bariatric Surgery
For those who struggle with weight loss, surgery can offer a new, healthier lease on life. Whether you’re considering surgery or have recently recovered, you might be wondering — what’s next? Is it safe to exercise, or can I just watch what I eat? In this podcast, bariatric surgeon Anthony Davis, MD, tells you what you can expect after surgery. He gives listeners an idea of what an exercise plan can look like and discusses safe activities, those to avoid, and how often a post-op patient should work out. In addition, Dr. Davis breaks down the minimally invasive options for weight-loss surgery — gastric sleeve, lap-band, and gastric bypass. He explains how surgeons decide which is best for you, what makes you a good candidate, and how to prepare for surgery.
