Hi @tcanava, You will notice we added a little to your discussion title to better describe the discussion and hopefully bring in members with experience to share with you. I did find the following information that may be helpful.

"How long after radical prostatectomy can I ride a bike?
You can start daily activities (such as walking and climbing stairs) immediately when you get home. However, you should wait three to four weeks before beginning any heavy exercise, such as jogging, weight lifting, and bicycle riding."

Did your surgeon or care team provide any guidelines or suggestions?

The hospital said 3 months but my Urologist says I should gradually build up and use a soft saddle. I do not want to replace my saddle on my racing bike.

Does anyone have a program which they followed where they increased a bit every week.

Just wondering when I can do a 3 or 4 hour cycle again or go on a cycling holiday. It is my main pastime.
