i Argee, talk to you doctor or physiotheapist. Do not rush things, but once you wounds hade healed how about swimming or aquasize to start with. My operation was no where as extrems as yours. They had to put a shunt in my liver (twinrix would have been a good idea prior to going the caribean. I also developed a haemotoma in my leg, and after the stiches came out I was encouraged to swim or go to aquasize to get some cardio. Just a suggestion. Im a social worker (far short from being a MD.

Good Luck and keep us up to date. I made it and so can you!!!!!


Leanne



BTW you look great!!!! Congrats

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Hey if you want you can ask the Dr. when you can start and post it here. We will all send you messages to start. With everyone pushing you there should be no problem. Heck what are friends for.

Thx all for your support. There is no question in my mind that I WILL move forward with the surgery. It will most likely be laparoscopic, however I was warned that hernia surgeries beginning laparoscopically can sometimes turn into the old fashioned slice-and-dice variety depending on what they find when they start rooting around in there.

I'm thinking that my anxieties are strong enough that there is no way...especially after making this all so PUBLIC :-) ... that I will allow myself to drop the ball as a result of the surgery.

After dropping all this weight, now wearing 48 pants for the first time in decades...there just is NO turning back for me now.

Failure truly ISN'T an option!

Hopefully your doctor will want you to walk so you will just have to adjust the speed of your machine. If worse comes to worse and you can't exercise ask when you can.
Put a red star or marker on your calander and make that day one. Make it something to look foward to.

I can bet that your surgeon will WANT you up and walking so I think that you will be moving more than you might imagine emoticon
It will be lifting that you will have to watch! Good luck! You'll do great especially since you are going into this with keeping on track already in mind! Keep us posted! Andrea

I've recently found out that I have a hernia. It appears to be the result of an old gastroplasty (stomach-stapling) which I had done 15 or so years ago. Although it isn't causing any pain right now, it jumps up out of my belly whenever I do exercises to strengthen my core...so I have stopped those exercises...for now.

I will probably go ahead with the surgery within the next month but am VERY worried over the interruption in my regimen. Even one day off the treadmill causes me to struggle so to push myself onto the treadmill the next day...how am I going to manage TWO WEEKS or so off the 'mill!?!?

Any tips, ideas, commiseration greatly appreciated....!
