  • Exercise after RPLND


    I was looking for some information as to exercising after an open RPLND. I had the operation 9 weeks ago.

    Generally, your doc is the best person to answer that, however, at 9 weeks out, if you take it slow and listen carefully to what your body is telling you you can probably start once you feel up to it. Just be sure to not push hard.If you overdo it, you WILL pay the price.Something like walking is probably a good place to start.

      Yeah, talk to your surgeon and follow their guidelines, and just listen to your body and don't do anything dumb. You'll obviously need to avoid anything that works the abs for awhile while your body heals. Plenty of walking is good. You can probably do some light jogging and other such things.

        Concur- ask your Dr., but my son was told by his Dr. to wait 6-8 weeks for strenuous exercise like mountain biking. My son did resume hiking and road bike riding within 3 weeks post surgery. He did not partake in kayaking, nor swimming at overnight summer camp since it was only 4 weeks later.
        Hope you are healing well.
