I got the thumbs up for light exercise from my doctor... Yay!!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Hi everyone. Yesterday I had my appt. with my doctor at the headache center. I went in to get routine nerve block injections in my head. I was talking to her and asking her about how she can help me reduce my weight and the pain that is associated with any type of exertion. I was surprised to see how much she wanted to help me and was happy that she used one of my suggestions. She gave me a medication used to control blood pressure that I should take 1 to 2 hrs. prior to exercise. She is going to supervise me for six weeks and will make any changes accordingly.

This week I have to start off with two days and see how that goes. Baby steps that I am happy to take. I just took the medication about an hour ago so I am going to see how it goes. Wish me luck in the next six weeks. I am still not going to weigh in for another two to three weeks and I am excited to see how well I am doing.

Thanks for reading, Maria

    Glad you had the ability to speak up for yourself to our doctor. Too many times we don`t talk to them and end up missing out on things.

    Hope everything goes well and this will allow you to do your exercises.

    Follow her orders though - even if you feel really good - don`t overdo it.
