Surgery Challenges

I am a college sophomore majoring in philosophy and minoring in dance. I am also a vegan, (no animal products of any kind.) I love reading, animals, ballet, art, music, classic films, performing, friends and family. (My idol, classic film star Vivien Leigh, is pictured.)

I am a college sophomore majoring in philosophy and minoring in dance. I am also a vegan, (no animal products of any kind.) I love reading, animals, ballet, art, music, classic films, performing, friends and family. (My idol, classic film star Vivien Leigh, is pictured.)

I've danced pretty much my whole life, and now have been presented with a new challenge of staying healthy during the next 5 months during which I will be immobile. I am staggering arthroscopic surgeries on both of my hips to relieve injuries to the cartilage, and have put on about 5lbs. in the past few months because I can't exercise as much as I used to. The other 5lbs. I want to lose is because I know I will (and already do) have less muscle mass relative to fat. Also, I am transferring from my CC to a 4yr college this fall, and will be living away from home for the first time. I am committed to not gaining the freshman fifteen!

Thank you for adding me as a friend. I am 42 now but I had an accident when I was 22, my graduation year, and have had 20 years of living with problems and pain. I've had the arthroscopies done on both ankles and I staggered them too because I couldn't bear to be completely immobilised. I am very determined and very independent and at times this hasn't helped because I've expected too much, too soon and this leads to disappointment, negative feelings, comfort eating and you can imagine the rest. All I'm saying is take advice given to you by your medical team, be realistic and patient with yourself and you'll be fine!
