Have you spoken with your surgeon/doctors about resuming strenuous exercise? I was in good physical condition when I had Whipple surgery. I would never have considered 'jogging' for the first few months. (You are missing a good amount of stuff that used to be in the abdominal area plus what's left has been 'rearranged'. Have you felt the strangeness of it yet? I did, but maybe I am just weird.) I took increasingly longer walks (paying close attention to posture) as I regained strength, and I did mild stretching. I was very careful about abdominal exercise since I wanted to avoid the possibility of a surgical incision hernia. I suggest starting with moderate walking, and if possible walk for 45 minutes to an hour or more daily. The longer the better. It is a very effective way to burn calories. Wishing you continued good luck with your recovery.
