I am almost 2 months post op and wanting to try to exercise a little.
So, I have some gentle options lined up and wanted to know if anyone has any advice as to whether it's safe or not.
My Dr said "no restrictions" and to ease back into life as I see fit.
I want to do either strength or walking 3-4 days per week to start and see how that goes.
I am not fit and need to lose weight.
I have these activities lined up: walk on the tread mill or do Leslie Sansone 1 mile walk, 2lb weights for arms: biceps, triceps and lateral raises, and leg weights for quadriceps raises.
I just did the arms and I do feel a tight feeling in the back of my head.
So I just stopped and am resting now.
But, am not sure if that is cuz the muscles are tight and sore.
But, I get that weird feeling in my head whenever I move above the speed of shuffling about the house in my slippers!
I wonder if it's the CSF fluid that causes that slight throbbing in the head or is it just from the deconditioning that comes from having surgery and resting a lot?
I am doing really well otherwise.
I do have some soreness at the back of my head still and I take regular strength Tylenol for that.
I take magnesium and vit d3 and multi vit and calcium.
Bottom line is does anyone have any input or advice ?
I rest a lot but I am getting to look like a marshmallow.
I am scared to get close to a flame! Someone might try to make s'mores out of me!
Thanks for reading!
