Exercise before TAH???

Help! I have been trying to exercise every day for about 15 minutes a day...not much but my thought was if it gets my arms and legs in better shape, it will be good for my recovery. I have done 8 days now and have 7 days left that I could exercise before my surgery. Tonight a friend e-mailed me and said I could bleed more during surgery by exercising so now I am totally freaked out. I thought I was doing something good...not bad!

Anyone out there exercise before surgery? I am not running like I was before.

Thank you!

I never hear that! Did you ask your doctor?

I plan to exercise every day before surgery!

The better shape your in before surgery, the better you heal afterwards.

Re: Exercise before TAH???

Rubbish! 15 mins is absolutely fine
and you should definitely continue. I'm 100% sure that being fit and healthy and making healthy eating choices prior to my TAH surgery 8 days ago has minimized post-op complications for me. I had a coagulation test 3 days prior to surgery just to check bleeding
times as I bruise easily. However, since
surgery - not a hint of bruising from either IV site or 5 inch incision. Use your last 7 days to eat well and Keep those limbs active. I promise it will serve you well! Lisa xo

I've been walking 3 miles, swimming and doing light weights at the gym. My surgery is 10/28. The main problem I have mow and trying to control is gastritis/GERD. Haven't been eating properly because of it, but hoping it's a lot better before surgery.

Anything you can do to improve your health before surgery will make recovery better. Take care.

Thank you. This is what I was thinking. I figured the better shape I am in, the better I will heal. I was freaking out.

Now, I woke with a cold this morning and my surgery is one week from today. I have a call into the doc to see if I can take anything at all. I am going to push through my 15 minute exercise DVD and then go and lay down for a quick nap. Praying God takes this from my body.
