Had my takedown on 10/16 and feel great. How soon before I can start:
-walking fast (treadmill/incline)
I think the lifting is 6 weeks but do push ups count in that category?
Thanks so much!
Just wondering if anybody has increased outout after working out. I seem to have increased ouput the followind day after working out. does that make sense
I think most people have more output (surgery or no surgery) after exercise. It is a good indicator that everything is working well. It's good practice to exercise and keep things moving. If ever I get thickened up a little I double my exercise and it normally settles down again.
I did a 615 raw squat tonight. I've had a j-pouch for 11 years (10 years since takedown).
I used to exercise regularly weights and cycling before I became ill, I had a 3 stage op and have had a pouch since 2007. I got back into the gym a year after, I started a bit to soon and have hernia in my groin but it's not an issue. I always wanted to run a marathon so I trained myself, it was part of my journey post op dealing with the depression I had. I ran my first marathon in 2011, I have gone on to run many ultra marathon's and quite a few 100 milers. Exercise has been the key ingredient for me and I feel the reason why I have had no problems. It's not been easy it's trail and error and listen to your body. It's been frustrating at times but keep at it. My out generally stays the same after exercise, on a longer endurance event it's one of the things that slow me down.
