Burpees



Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if burpees are ok to do with the band. I know I can't do crunches, but I was curious.

I would say try first and if you don't have trouble then keep it up. Pain will probably depend on where your port is located. My is right at my waist band and it hurts every time I squat down or bend over. NP says it's because of my port position.

The port could flip.

I am newly banded on 9/13 and my surgeon placed my port in my chest. He placed a small incision under my left arm and the port is near there I assume. I can't feel it at all. His rationale is that the chest cavity is the most stationary part of the body and ports there tend not flip. Anyone heard of this?

I have heard of it, but it is rare. Sounds better to me. Plus you don't have to worry about it being as obvious and sticking out as you loose weight I wouldn't think.

I do crunches and was never told I couldn't. I even asked and was told it was fine. Every doctor is different though I guess.

I had surgery May 2012 and have not found any exercise I can't do, nor have I been told I shouldn't. Sometimes when I do body rolls for aerial silks class I can feel when I roll over my port now, but besides that I don't even know its there!

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
