Three weeks ago I got my appendix out (it was super fun) anyways I am not cleared to lift, pull, push more then 20 lbs for another 3 weeks. I have been staying in shape with some light hiking does anyone have any other ideas I could do? If you had yours out how did you climb when you could climb again? Did you have to take it easy at first? How long did you wait to climb again? Any help advice you could give I would appreciate.
I got mine remove pretty recently as well. Do you just have the the small incisions or did they slice you open. I was option one. I got mine remove on a Friday night and the next Saturday went climbing, big multipitch hard climbing. Slept on the wall and everything. It bled a little but nothing serious. I kept it covered and wrap my stomach in an ace bandage to kinda hold everything in place. Do I recommend this, probably not. But a little light climbing ain't gonna kill you at this point.
I had mine out 8/21, and I soloed the NW face of Little Bear Peak (CO) on 9/5. They did it laparoscopically and I didn't have any trouble at all, save for some weakness due to lack of training. I'd say go for it, and after about a week or week and a half of recovery, do whatever feels OK. If it hurts, don't do it.
Had mine out laparoscopically a few years ago. Only had restrictions for 2 weeks and then was let free to do whatever, but I was going nuts at the end. 6 week recovery sounds more like you had it rupture or they didn't do it laparoscopically?
I would follow DR's suggestion because they know what they cut when they cut you. One potential issue is giving yourself a hernia and then they'd just have to put you under again. No bueno.
It was laparoscopic I got 3 Incisions, it was not ruptured but very close and very inflamed on the ct scan. I feel pretty good now but I donít want to get a hernia so I can climb 3 weeks sooner so will probably just wait it out till the doctor told me I could climb oct 16th. If I can actually stick to what I just said that is.
