I got my gallbladder taken out about three weeks ago, I do have some minor pain still but I'd like to start working out soon. I'm new to the whole health/ fitness deal and would like to see if anyone has any recommendations on how to get started. Thanks in advance!

Did your doctor give you any limitations?

No lifting more than 15 -20 pounds up to six weeks after depending on how I feel.

Can you walk around comfortably? I'd start going on short walks with 5 pound weights

Using the weights will keep to burn calories with minimal effort while your body recovers.

That seems like a good idea, I'll start with short walks, see how I feel with that. Thanks! :)
