Hi everyone. I'm not a new runner and have been running for awhile. But I'm discouraged. My surgery (davinci LAVH) is on May 29th and it has kicked both of my marathons off the schedule for this summer/fall. Running is seriously the only thing that keeps me sane these days, and I am really worried that the 4-6 week layoff after my surgery is going to affect me mentally. I had a diagnostic lap in March and couldn't run for two weeks- I was totally grumpy the whole time.

What did/will you ladies do when you couldn't/can't run to maintain your sanity?

I do understand what you mean. I don't run but I walk fast. It turns me in to a mean lady when I didn't get my exercise in! I tried to go out in the backyard in the sunshine and walk around for a few minutes a few times a day and that seem to help my mood.

I too was worried when I knew I couldn't run. I actually started walking 3/4 a mile 2 days later. Very slow to start with. By week 2 I was walking 2 miles, and by week 3, I was fast walking almost 4 miles. It didn't give me the same endorphin "high" than I get from running, but it was fine. I am week 5 and I am going to start light jogging next week at week 6. I am really looking forward to it.

You will be fine. The time has flown by. I feel completely healed. Work part time 3 days a week and started back to step aerobics last week. I have no pain at all.

Hope all goes well with you.

Please do not be discouraged that you can not run. You will be back stronger and running smoothly soon! If you can take slow walks and gradually allow yourself to build the strength to jog very slow. Running will be easy for you due to your desire!

This will go by quickly. Pamper yourself and be thankful that you made it through and you will be better than you were before surgery. It is important to take it easy so that you can allow your body to adjust and heal .

Take care and know that the running is on the way.

Hi, I have a question for the runners. I used to run, did a marathon 6 years ago and then ditched it to cycle and hike. I had a TAH in August, softball fibroid, endo, and have been cleared for everything. I healed great, backpacked to the bottom and back to the top of the grandcanyon at 8 weeks out with the AOK from my doc (it was fantastic) I would like to start running again, but when I try to jog, it feels as if all my guts are sloshing around as if there is way too much room in there and guts are looking for a place to call home. Anyway, A very wierd feeling. Any advice? I am still a little sore at either end of the incision area, I guess where the ligaments are. I had no problems and went back to work in two weeks,probably because I was a hiker and did alot of post op walking.
