When did you get back to exercise?



Recommended Posts

I am 5 weeks out and itching to get back to weight training. Right now I am walking around the track, riding the bike, using the treadmill at increased inclines, using the ecliptic machine, and I use the rower and arm cycle machine. I M still fatigued but working out helps me deal with stress and I sure sleep well.

I was not allowed to start incorporating weights until 6 months post op. Even though I despise walking for exercise I was up and walking around a few hours after surgery. The first few weeks as others have said I didn't have much energy, so it was hard to do much of anything. Once I was able to eat more solid foods and had some energy I was able to start walking more. I do try to take the dog for a walk a few times a week at least around the block (he had surgery and is not able to do long walks for quite some time). Once we have the space for it I plan on getting treadmill or bike so even when the weather is not optimal outside I can still get some activity in.

I was released to workout on weights around 6 weeks. I use the machines and free weights. I am three months out now and work out 1 to 1 1/2 hours 4-5 days a week. It really helps me lose weight and reduce stress. I am trying to get everything turned into muscle and it is working out well. I know I will still have some loose skin but my core will be tight.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
