Exercise after shoulder surgery ?

I will be having my labrum repaired (arthroscopic SLAP procedure) next week. I am wondering if I will be able to go on runs or bike rides a few days after the surgery? I am aware this may not feel great on the arm, but what I am really concerned about is would this injure the shoulder? I mean there is nothing wrong with my legs so I don’t see why not but just curious what others think. Thanks.

    1. Read your after-surgery instructions very closely.

    2. Do the exercises directed by your doctors and physical therapists.

    3. Attend physical therapy as scheduled.

    4. A fall or collision can compromise your shoulder.

    5. Additional questions should be addressed by your health care professionals.

    Of course not. Your body will be moving when running, and  as for holding the handlebars of a bike !! You will have stitches in your shoulder and swelling.

    Daft idea.

    Ask your physician, not random people that are more likely to yell "Trump!", "Biden", or "Peking Boulevard!"
