Exercise after an operative laparoscopy

Hi Dr.,

I've had an operative laparoscopy last week and I was wondering when I could resume abdominal exercises and cycling. I still feel some discomfort in the lower abdomen. Can I resume whenever I feel okay or do I have to wait longer to avoid getting a hernia?

Cheers,
Gen

The dr is on the expert forum on the right hand side of the main forum page. I was told 6 weeks to recover, except walking, no lifting over 10 lbs, etc.. Best wishes.
