  • Intense Exercise - How Long After I/O

    Hi All,

    It is 8 weeks since my I/O. I'm going nuts not playing soccer, but I can't get a definite answer on how long I should wait before hard exercise.

    The urologist says 4-6 weeks, my GP says 8 weeks and a couple of friends that have had herniea repairs say 12-14 weeks.

    What have been your experiences.

    After my son's IO he was back doing anything he wanted after 6 weeks. Of course you need to start with light work just to check everything out.
    Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

    Treated by Dr. Rakowski of Midland Park, NJ. Visited Sloan Kettering for protocol advice. RPLND done at Sloan Kettering.
