I was 49 on the 12th and had a TAH on the 8th. I love to road bike. It is my stress reliever, my cardio vascular exercise and just plain enjoyment. My doctor says 6 weeks until I'm out on the road again. When do you suppose I can train? I have a trainer in my garage and I can set it up . I really want to get back into shape to do a couple of long distance rides aat the end of the summer. If I wait until mid-July I'll be out for the whole summer.

You should ask your doctor about training. There are so many internal sutures with this surgery that you have to be very careful until everything is healed or you could risk tearing something or even forming adhesions if you overdo it too soon.

Just hang in there, you'll be up and raring to go soon enough. Right now, give your body the time it needs to heal. You only get one chance to heal properly, you know.

wow - Im impressed that you are even thinking about training!

Im 49 too and had my TAH/BSO on June 1st. Im not thinking about training - my biggest thoughts right now revolve on going to the bathroom and walking around.

I went to the grocery store yesterday - hung on to the cart and shuffled around. I didnt lift anything - I had my step-daughter to help. My first time really out of the house and I loved it.

Patience my dear. The more you have now, will determine your recovery period. Jumping the gun might have serious setbacks. Enjoy your down time. Maybe there's some books you haven't gotten around to reading. You can always have an adventure through them if you are getting restless.

I'm 51 and had LSH/BSO on 4-9-04. I walk daily and ride my bike 2-3 times a week. Found I had to work my way up slowly for both activities. Walking was the easiest and really had no problem doing multi-miles after 1st week post-op. But my bike was a different story. First time out was hard, got back home feeling wiped out. Very fatigued. It made my tummy hurt. My body just wasn't ready for that kind of heavy duty work out. Didn't try it for another week. Then it was still difficult, so waited yet another week. I wasn't an avid bike rider beforehand so maybe that's my problem now, but riding the bike really causes alot of fatigue for me - the long brisk walks don't. Read an interesting post here that after 3 months our bodys are only healed 25%. Six months it's 50%. It takes about a year to heal. So listen to your body, it will tell you if you've done too much. I'm 9 weeks post op and have been trying to get on bike 2-3 times a week and slowly it's getting better.
