Diep Flap and Cycling

Hi. Is anyone, who has had a DIEP flap a keen cyclist?  If so, how did the op affect your cycling?  I am scheduled for this type of reconstruction soon, but can’t find an answer to this question.  Can anyone help?  Thanks.

Not a keen cyclist but love keeping fit…ask your surgeon.You will have kept your core muscles,but when I had my surgery all I did was walk,and built that up…you will find its a confidence  thing as well.For the first few weeks you can not really use your arm/arms fully anyway.

everyone is different,but my Pilates instructor would not see me for 12weeks.

take care

My friend had diep recon this time last year, she’s a horse rider and was back in the saddle within about 12 weeks.
