Back in the Saddle again

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

I had my 4-week check this morning. The doc gave me the okay to resume my normal life, with the exceptions of no sex & no lifting anything over twenty pounds for two more weeks. So, as soon as I retrieved my bike from my office, I went for a ride.

The doctor also gave an explanation for why my appetite is reduced: lack of estrogen. It makes sense, because a body that produces estrogen thinks it's a breeder, and producing healthy babies requires food. But it surprises me because all I've heard is women complaining about gaining weight post-hysterectomy. Nonetheless, in this area, I'm more than happy to be a statistical outlier!

I go back to work tomorrow. I won't try commuting until next week, but I do hope to get a couple more bike rides in. My contact patch will need to ease back into my normal cycling routine.

    Slow and steady, Ms.Slug. That may frustrate you a bit - but you'll be back on long rides in no time. Be well!
