I started back to the gym yesterday--ONLY the treadmill and very light upper body machines, but it felt great!

I have always been in the gym though, so if you haven't been accustomed to weights or gym workouts often, BE CAREFUL!!

30 minutes of walking, somwhere, anywhere is the best therapy for at least the first 4-6 weeks. Check with your Dr. though.....

I just joined this site today. I had my surgery on Oct. 10 & just like "Sukipup", I left the hospital bloated and gassy with an additional 6 lbs. Pre-OP, I was working out at least 5x's a week (I am a group ex instructor part-time) so I started walking approx. 2-1/2 weeks post surgery. While I feel good, I am still not seeing the weight come off. I had surgery because of the many, many fibroids that continued to cause me complications. My sister had surgery about six months ago for the same reason, and she has dropped TWO PANTS SIZES! She had lost 11 lbs when she left the hospital. I guess this thing is just different for everyone. I will just continue to work hard to lose the weight. Thanks for the posts, as it shows me that I am not the only one.

Tomorrow is my 2 weeks post-surgery. I can't even begin to imagine going to the gym. I'm used to walk aerobics and walking 2-4 miles per day at a pace of 4 or 5 miles per hour. I lift weights or other toning 3 days per week. Well, not right now though.

My pace has slowed dramatically since surgery. I walked some at the hospital and have walked 3 times per day starting at 10 min. Yesterday, I bumped up to 13-14 min each walk.

I could probably drive now, but I really just don't feel up to it.

I"ve been chicken to weigh since surgery. My clothes fit and my rings fell off one day. I panicked over my rings, but I located them in the bathroom. fortunately, my rings were on the floor and not down the drain.

My no work rule probably means no heavy workouts, either. I feel strange to not be washing clothes while at home. I'm short and using the washer is hard on a good day, as far as reaching in the washer.

I just had my two week check-up and got the all clear for nearly everything except sex.

Of course, I had a TVH, so I don't have the longer healing period that some of you ladies have with the exterior incision. My best wishes to you who are going through that.

I will tell you this though, although I was walking, I was also sleeping ALOT!! I was sleeping about 12 hours per day for the first 10 days and lifted nothing heavy, and then while I was awake I just started increasing my walking activity each day. It worked for me.

It was really just yesterday that I stopped getting fatigued like I was before. It will just hit you, and you'll suddenly feel good--it's weird!

All clear (or almost) in 2 weeks?? Wow! Is that typical? I think your letters are for vaginal surgery. I would think that is easier.

the different techniques seem to be based on the reason for the surgery.

I'm 8 days past my surgery and I've lost 8lbs so far
The uterus was the size of a 14 week pregnancy and I hac ovarian cysts and endemetriosis, so I suppose that would account for the weight.

It's great to have a flatter tummy even if I can hardly walk just yet lol
