Starting early before surgery... Anybody else work out.. pre op...



Recommended Posts

I started out about 7 weeks before my surgery on a Very Low Calorie Diet (600 calories perday) and worked out 2 times per day. I lost over 30 lbs and got my self ready for the surgery. I had surgery on the 15th of May and I am doing fine, no complications, no pain nothing. I say keep it up and get on a very strict diet, you will be glad you did.

I think that's a great idea! I was edy sedentary before surgery. Now I walk once a day and am feeling great!

Congrats on your upcoming surgery!

YES AND IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I MADE... I started on the treadmill about 2 months before gettin on the treadmill about 5 days per week. The last month I did 30 straight days on the treadmill, I was told by my surgeon that lessons chances of issues during surgery and basically gets your blood flowing and it's helps with recovery... I had surgery on 5/13 and I am already back on the treadmill yesterday 5/18.... No complication and weight coming off, so I vote for yes get on the treadmill everyday... Hope this helps...

Yes, I worked out regularly (4-5x/week) at the gym at least several months before surgery to get strong and prepare for my future life.

And the strength and endurance will stand you in good stead, the fitter you are, the quicker you heal, and when you heal you can keep on going to Good Good things. We will hear from you " Surgery wasn't bad, hardly slowed me down with Life!"

Thanks for your advice... I have been doing the treadmill every day.. 1st day only 3 minutes before a pause.. 2nd day 5 minutes before a pause... 3rd day 7 minutes before a pause... I do 10 minutes at the beginning and 5 minutes after my work out....
