Some times I act worse than my kids when they were small. I would have to tell them to not do whatever they were getting ready to do or were in the process of doing. I have been walking and jogging recently. I was in pain. My thought was that I had not been exercising much so the pain would cease. It got so bad I had to seek medical attention.
All things are not bad! After a series of tests I find, today, that I have to have an angiogram which is an invasive procedure. It also involves dye which is not broken down by my kidneys they way it should be. This is scheduled for the 18th of this month (October). Because of my kidneys it will have to be completed over several procedures. Because of my legs I would have been in serious trouble if I not had the symptoms. So, if I had not been trying to walk and jog I would not have gone to the dr with my particular symptoms.
We should never continue to exercise when we are in pain. I find that I am so competitive that I just had to keep going. I will not do this again even though it turned out ok. I am assured that after the procedure I should not have any problems doing whatever exercise I want. Right now I can do any exercise that does not involve excessive use of the legs or walking--in some form. All of my physicians and I want me to lose weight so I am not going to give up I am just going to take off as little time as possible before I start doing walking or jogging exercises. I am determined to lose some of this weight.
