Hello! I am 3+ weeks out from a TT, BR/BL, and lipo. Doing well. Having some wound healing complications (I had a small area of fat necrosis and my PS had to reopen a small portion of my abdominal scar and I am packing it 2x/day) - however, this finally seems to be on the road to recovery. Feeling much better every day, though sore at times and definitely more tired/exhausted than normal. Also back at work - sigh... So, I wondering what you all thought about going to the gym at this point to do very light, low-impact work out (no abs of course). I am set to meet with a personal trainer tomorrow (I will be 2 days short of 4 weeks post-op) and the trainer knows that I am "rehabbing" from major abdominal surgery. She is going to work with me on very light workout that avoids any real core work - walking on treadmill, maybe very light elliptical work, etc. My PS cleared me to increase exercise as tolerated and said I could even work my arms, just no ab work. I was all excited for this, but now getting nervous that I might hurt myself or have a set back... Anyone back at the gym? Thoughts?
