Biking

Postby vdb324 » 06 Jul 2014, 10:44

So, I am nearly three and a half months post-LIS. The surgeon told me six weeks out that I could resume normal activities, including biking and spin class. I've been doing great with recovery - really no problems anymore (PTL!). However, biking terrifies me quite a bit. How long did all of you wait before biking after surgery?

I'm not a biker per se, just leisure riding. My ass will not see a seat for a long time. Good luck to you, listen to your body.

I have been wondering the same thing myself. I'm almost 7 weeks post-LIS. I actually feel fine to bike and have thought about going back to my spin class. I might go this Saturday. I've been doing hot yoga since 3 weeks post-LIS, no problems. If I do go back to spin soon I'll let you know!

I'm going to be in the same boat.. having LIS today and biking is my main method of transpo. Put 10 rides on my bus card but unless he tells me otherwise I intend to get back on next week.

Hi I am 3 weeks post op tomorrow, after LIs, doing ok, went for a motorcycle ride two days ago, and what with beautiful weather, and the fact that I haven't ridden this year hardly at all because of af , went a bit too long, and was sore afterwards, not sure how long til it doesn't hurt, have a trip planned for a 3 day or so ride with friends, hopefully it will be better by then, I guess we all have to give it time, and that won't be the same for all of us, trust your body if you feel up to trying a bike ride try it, your body will let you know if you are ready.

Thanks, all. I did some minor biking today (2 miles) on a gym bike with the nice full seat (backrest included), and my bum was sore, but just because of not being used to the bike seat. I might hold off a few more weeks on the regular bike seat and spin class, as that is always a little rougher on the bottom. Do keep me updated!
