If you have a stationary bike at home, begin this activity at 2 weeks post-surgery.
RECOMMENDATION: Ride the bicycle with minimum tension for 5 minutes, 2-3 times per day. Gradually progress endurance on the bike to 20-35 minutes once daily, 3-5 times/week by 6 weeks. As tolerated, resistance to the pedals can be advanced.
