I wanna workout so bad I can taste it [emoji30][emoji30][emoji30]



Recommended Posts

Whennnnnn can I workout???!!!!!! I’m 11 days VSG post op and I feel AMAZING!!!! I went from 275-252.4. 23 lbs down baby! I’ve pretty much been able to tolerate everything but juice that isn’t diluted. Although it’s no sugar added, I still felt some discomfort but it wasn’t too bad. My incisions look great. The only one that still hurts to the touch in that one where they actually pulled the stomach thru. That ish hurtttsssssss! But for the most part I feel wonderful! I wanna get back in the gym. My boyfriend bought me some resistance bands but I’m a person that loves the gym so this is killing me slowly 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️ (not literally). I don’t go for a follow up until the end of the month . I’m not a treadmill girl. I literally go hard in the gym (which of course I know I can’t do) but what can I do that’s safe but will still give me that good old sweat filled fulfillment??? TMI but can I at least be intimate with my boo?? 🤭Help me! Lol help a sista out!

Don’t.

Don’t work out at all until month 2. It’s extremely important to let your body heal. Working out can hinder your healing process.

My dr told me no workouts, but screw all I want. Just be extra cautious to not allow bodily fluids into your incisions. They need to stay clean to heal with no complications

I know that feeling! I had my gallbladder removed about two weeks ago and I asked the surgeon about when I could go back to the gym so many times that he just told me I would end up with a hernia if I went sooner than four weeks.

I rested for one week, cleaned up the entire house on the second week and then I went to the gym. I did not do any abdominal exercises or weight lifting. I went on the elliptical and walked on the treadmill. Don’t push it and listen to your body. If you fall from the elliptical because you are not able to consume the calories and you just worked out or you are dehydrated, you are in trouble. If I were you, I would walk a lot. Or even if you do go to the gym, take it very very easy.

I have four similar incisions from my gallbladder surgery as I had for the gastric sleeve and I did the same thing for when I had that surgery. No weight lifting what so ever unless you want to to prolong your healing process and be bed bound for even longer!

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
