Lap-Band How soon will I be able to go spinning?

I LOVE my spin classes and never miss a week unless I'm on holiday.

How soon after having a band will I be able to resume my classes?

I was thinking a month, maybe 5 weeks, if I've healed well..

I need to get fit for skiing before the end of the year.

this was the info from my provider....

Gentle walking almost immediately and then gradually increase duration of daily walking up to 30 mins over the next 7-10 days. Swimming and low-intensity gym activities (not sit-ups) can be resumed 2-3 weeks after surgery, assuming wounds are fully healed. 6-10 weeks for higher intensity

Double check with your provider but I was spinning again at 6 weeks. I love it too !!

Another hard core spinner here. I tried at 3 weeks last WLS, not great. I was ok at 6 weeks as I never realised how much you use you stomach muscles. I've just got the all clear at 4 months this time round to try and see how it goes.

Hmm 6 weeks sounds about right then, I don't want to risk anything going wrong. Guess I'll just have to stick to walking on the treadmill for a while!

Thanks everyone.
