Liberation Day!!!!

Well, after 2 1/2 weeks and lots of bumps, I am finally off the doggone catheter and on my way to a full recovery. I have had to go on the catheter 4 times and was diagnosed with a bacterial infection this past week, but all in all it hasn't been too bad. I am anxious to get back to excercising but after reading about all the women who have started excercising too soon will take doc's (who is triathlete) advice and not do anything until 4 weeks post op and then follow his recommended schedule.

I have to pull out of my Oct marathon, but have a November half marathon that I have plenty of time to train for.

I wish all of you continued bump free recoveries.

I am glad you are following your doctor's advice. It sounds like you trust him about exercise because he also does triathalons. I only did walking until 4 weeks post op. (well and little chipping and putting with the golf ball as per doc's OK). But once I started back at 4 weeks, it only took me a few weeks to get back all my strength. The only thing I couldn't do at pre-op strength was the ab machine at the Y. I was able to swim a mile, run on the treadmill and ride bike just fine. I went back to work at 8 weeks, and was training for a triathalon (a fun one at the Y) at that time.
You will be glad you gave your body a good chance to heal.

Hi Ladies,
I had my three week checkup today and got the all clear to start "jogging" slowly in two weeks and work up to running if everything felt ok. He even said I could start doing ab work at five weeks as long as it didn't hurt! I'm so excited!!!!

Well, I was one of the unfortunate slow healers...I haven't been able to do much exercising...started back at Curves at 7 1/2 wks, then in my 3rd mo. got "sent to the recliner" for 2 wks of rest.

I am now back at Curves this week, also did the treadmill far, so good! I hope that I have reached a turning point and will be able to continue with my workouts. I take my hat off to those who got back into their normal routines so quickly!

Take care ladies, and be careful not to overdo like I did!
