Hey girls. I'm new to the community, but this circle is of great interest to me. I love to work out. A friend and I work with a personal trainer and use kettle bells, plus regular outdoor activities with kids, etc. I enjoy running and simple, straight forward free-weight lifting.
On 11/19, a week before Thanksgiving, I had a laparoscopic hysterectomy. I'm recovering very well, feeling considerably better each day. Today, 7 days post-op, I got on the treadmill to test the fitness waters. I couldn't run... heck, I couldn't walk faster than 3.5 mph. But, I did manage to stay on for 48 minutes. Not bad.
Has anyone had any experience with this? If you have, for the sake of specifics, my doctor also used the da vinci robot to aid in the minimally invasive hysterectomy. Good times!
