5 weeks post op and still tired. Normal?
By aussie_girl on 05 Jan 2012
Hi all I'm 5 weeks post op (only small reduction - 34E to 34C) and still very tired. I'm only able to do 45 min at the gym and that's just walking and resistance work, nowhere near the high intensity or frequency I was pre op. The surgeon cleared me to go back to the gym át 2 weeks post op - he even said I could go back to the rowing machine, but I haven't yet as that doesn't seem to align with what I've read here. I have had a wound opening at the t junction, so not sure if this is slowing my healing and recovery? I've put on weight (and gone UP a cup size :( )since the surgery so very keen to get back to high intensity exercise. How were others' recovery levels 4-6 weeks post op? Just wondering when I can expect to get back feeling good. :)
