Response to Ozi - Returning to Gym

Hi Ozi, I wasn't told much about this in Poland (of course I didn't ask, either) and I started light exercising almost as soon as I returned to Canada. From reading people's posts on TiMS (based upon what they heard from doctors, mostly), you should keep your exercise light for at least two weeks so that the stent has an opportunity to become fixed in your vein.  Since I'd only heard that after I'd been home for a while, I actually started upping my exercises toward what I normally do after being back only a week, but it's probably safer to wait at least two weeks. ...Ted
