How long before I should bend over again?

How long before I should bend over again?

I had laparoscopy last friday and my dr told me no bending or lifting anything heavy after but didn't give me a time frame

I would say 3-4 weeks and still, after that, I would be very careful what you pick up. Because of surgery, you're at risk of getting a hernia near your abdominal.

Yeah I was told 3 weeks for sure and no heavy lifting for 5 weeks (nothing that weighs more than a gallon of milk)

Thanks everyone! I was told that it would likely take two weeks for me to feel better but not given any more info. I'm feeling great but there's still pressure on my incisions when I move wrong so I think I'll go with 2 weeks

I waited about 2 weeks as well. Trust your body!

My first laparoscopy I was told nothing over 10 lbs for 2 weeks. But I think I was pretty careful for more like 3-4 weeks
