yoga after tummy tuck
Byon 07 Aug 2011
Hi all! I had a full tummy tuck 16 days ago and am enjoying an unexpectedly smooth recovery -- although I realize I'm not out of the woods yet. In spite of all the research I did before surgery, somehow I managed to overlook the part about not doing any serious ab work, such as yoga, for three to six months after surgery (my PS told me six months; docs on the internet generally say three). I plan to listen to my PS and wait for him to grant me permission to increase my activity. But now I'm wondering: How do you know when you're ready? Even after my PS gives me the green light, how will I know that my MR is really, truly up for some core work? How do you know for sure when you can do a serious backbend without rupturing all your internal sutures? Those of you who do yoga, what has your experience been? Many thanks in advance for your advice!
