How fast after surgery can I start exercising?

You may still feel tired during the first weeks after surgery. You will gradually resume daily activities. Start practicing slowly. As the weight decreases, exercise becomes easier. Exercising is not only important for reducing your weight, but it is just as important for improving your condition and your overall health. 

It is possible that you will receive rehabilitation exercises in the hospital in the first days after surgery. Lifting (> 5 kg) is best avoided during the first 4 weeks after surgery. 

About 6 weeks after surgery, you can start an exercise program, best under supervision via the moveUP app or by a physiotherapist. Ultimately, sports and exercise should become a logical and permanent part of your lifestyle. This healthy change can also help you to keep your ultimate weight gain 

Walking, cycling and swimming are fun options to achieve a good result effectively. It is recommended that you exercise for 30 minutes daily. Choose activities that you enjoy and which you can do when and where it suits you.
