Tip: No Heavy Lifting

It’s recommended not to lift anything over 5-10 pounds for the first two weeks (at least!) after surgery. A good visual of this is a gallon of milk.  The lifting can cause pressure in the abdominal cavity, and that is the area that needs the recovery! This is the time to listen to your body, take it easy, and ask for help.

Depending on the type of surgery, and if there were any complications, the lifting ban could proceed for longer. Please make sure to be cleared by your doctor before doing any strenuous lifting.
