I have read most of the posts talking about typical vision recovery times after cataract surgery.
However, what I am curious about is how long should I hold off doing much heavy lifting/exercise or bike riding?
My surgery was 1-week ago. I also received an Avastin injection for CME that came up after a retinal tear surgery in February. Vision still has not recovered very well as yet and doc said it may take several months.
So not sure if any physical activity restrictions would apply.
Thanks for the response - I was thinking 4~6 weeks, but I believe your recommendation is probably better to follow given the retinal surgery I had in Feb.
I tried to ask the surgeon who performed the surgery only to find out he had had gone on vacation for 3-weeks. And the doctor who I had my first check up with, was not sure what to tell me only offering me to wait.
Bike riding falls - I had my first bicycle riding accident this Jan gave me a collapsed left lung and torn right rotator cuff. First hard fall I've ever had on my bike. But helmets are always mandatory for me and I ride almost exclusively on dedicated bike riding trails.
2011 has not been a good year. Been in hospital every month but April this year. And the fact that my next birthday will be the big 60. Not liking the fact need to slow down...
