What activities should be avoided after nephroureterectomy?

Your doctor will tell you what type of activity is not recommended right after the surgery.

After nephroureterectomy, your body needs time to heal and you need to avoid certain movements that can impair the healing process.

Heavy lifting and strenuous activities are not allowed for 4 weeks after the surgery.

You will be able to resume your typical activities gradually but pay attention to all the warning signals your body sends. If engaging in a particular activity causes pain or discomfort, you should stop to rest. If the discomfort persists once you resume that activity, it’s better you refrain from it and call your doctor to ask for advice.
