No problems getting on the stationary bike at this point. Keep resistance low (nearish zero) and seat nice and high. Enjoy! I'd suggest starting in very small doses but I'm sure you already know that...

That was the first exercise I was put on when I started outpatient physical therapy on both hips.

I just put the seat on what was comfortable and stayed on for as long as I was comfortable. My goal was just movement, not anything else. Make sure you get on and off comfortably.

No resistance is the way to go.
