help suggestions pain surgery
1/2/13 5:47 PM
I am suppose to be having abdominal surgery next week. Hopefully it will only be laparoscopic, but there is a chance I will be cut open some. I am pretty fit right now and in week 6 of Turbo Fire. Before Turbo, I did Brazil Butt Lift. I also run and bike (climbing mountains on the road.) I mountain bike some too. My question is, what video series can I attempt while recovering. I've worked too hard to loose it now! Just starting to see progress. I know I can't do Turbo, run, or climb any mountains while in the recovery period, but I refuse to just sit.
I plan on doing a cleanse after surgery and some light yoga until the pain decreases, but my doctor isn't a fitness nut so I want advice from people like me who areemoticon
What would you suggest while there is still discomfort and then what would you suggest while still technically in the recovery period. Obviously, I will listen to my body, but....

If you're having surgery the only advice I would give is talk to your doctor and maybe a certified physical therapist. They will know what is best for you. No one wants to take the time off from working out, but any surgery is a big deal in my book and you need the time to recover. I would do whatever it is they tell you to do and just focus on keeping your diet really clean.

I appreciate that. I do plan on working on my diet A LOT! It is my weakness actually emoticon I've had 4 similar procedures done in the past 13 years and each 1 is less painful than the last. Obviously I will be paying very close attention to how I feel and not doing high impact stuff during the recovery phase, but my dr has always told me to get up and move, just not overdo it. To not do anything that hurts. I love beachbody and it's cold outside so I was hoping to get input on videos that may not have a lot of high impact stuff (or I could easily modify) and not a lot of abs (even though I love working them.). Thanks for your input emoticon

If your doctor says low impact is ok, I would walk as much as possible. You will get benefits from long, low impact work outs. As the other member said, work on improving your diet in the meanwhile as well, and then when you are strong, you will be ready to go!!! Take care, and focus on your healing - it is important for your long distance health!

We are waiting on surgery for a little bit. So, right now I am SUPER motivated to workout! Yeah, finally. With surgery comin up, I missed so many sessions that I'm now making up. I just knew how much I'd be limited. So, going to try to tie up loose ends around house, catch up some videos and really push until surgery. Then, detox a bit and enjoy a well deserved recovery time from both workout and surgery. Dr said Id need to wait 6 weeks to do high impact, but be ok at 4 weeks to workout. Going to let me do milder stuff as soon as I feel like it emoticon Think I'll order the new brazil butt lift videos at some point and modify all the videos I have to low impact. Throw in some yoga too. Thanks for the input and if anyone has any video suggestions, let me know. Oh, will def be working on my diet!!! It's gotten bad since Christmas
