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! :)
