I'd guess about 4 to 6 weeks. Talk to your doctor before starting to excercise. You could really hurt yourself if you start too early.

I agree. I had an open appendectomy two months ago and i wasn't allowed to go to school for 2 weeks (i am only 13 years old) and i was not allowed to do physical activities for another two weeks, so i would say about a month before doing exercise but my surgeon told me that he was being generous saying not to do physical activities because he said i will be able to do them before 4 weeks. So i would say 3 weeks to a month.

What is the difference between open heart surgery and bi pass surgery?

The term "open heart surgery" is really used incorrectly. We use it to mean a surgery where the chest is cut open to get the heart. A "bypass surgery" is where they cut open your chest and reroute the large blood vessels (arteries) on the outside of the heart. We do wrongfully call Bypass Surgery a type of Open Heart Surgery. But I would call a real "open heart surgery" where they cut open the chest and then cut open the heart to work inside the heart, like replace valves.
