Is it safe to exercise. 6 weeks post op. 600 to 700 calories per day. Mostly Protein. Can our bodies take exercise with the low calories we are having. I don't want to break muscle. Any advice xx

YES! Get moving! My doc said 10,000 steps a day to start. I was doing that by day 7 post op. Start walking, walking, walking. You can't do any weights yet, but you can do leg exercises, arm exercises, and climb stairs.

I could do pretty much everything except weights at that point (I think I had to wait eight weeks before doing weights)

I do spin and weights ... To make sure you do not burn muscle just make sure you have a Protein Drink after working out.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
