When safe to exercise?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'll be coming up on my second week post transplant. 

I was told that after 14 days it was okay to exercise.

But I play tennis for like 2 or 3 hours when I go out. So the definition of exercise to me is kind of vague. Jogging for 20 minutes? 

Of course I'll be wearing a hat but I also want to know if it's safe at this point to put sun block on.

Thanks everyone.

OK to exercise.  No restrictions 7-10 post op, particularly aerobatic type exercises.  The main concern after 14 days is weight training, particularly anything stretching the neck as it can cause the scar, (with FUT), to stretch and widen. OK to put sun block.

thanks a lot for the response. Of course I trust my surgeon but the answers are always somewhat vague "you can exercise" but then there is the issue of the type of excercise. If you are playing tennis and in the sun you can wear hat (all my grafts are frontal hairline) but will sweating a ton cause issues and how many days to wait to put sun screen on the grafted areas. 

sorry for the rambling
