How soon after transplant can you resume weight lifting?


Recommended Posts

For us after FUE, then the patient is usually back in the gym at 14 days and they break back into it so probably less heavy or intense  than the usual routine but they are in the swing of things soon after. Cardio not a problem at 14 days. Just be careful with weights not to bang your head on any iron and especially with things like laying down pull-overs etc where the weight is passing back and forth over the scalp...

I had instructions as follows:
14 days - light exercise
30 days - can resume any contact sport, swimming and heavy lifting

I think majority of it is just a precaution, but I would advise not to rush. You just had a surgery, you paid a lot of money, you used your donor that is worth more than money can buy.
I'm sure in a long run after 10 years it won't matter if you would go back to the gym 2 weeks earlier or later.
