Re: Recovering from Cold Knife Conization
I had CKC, tubal ligation, D & C, and TVT-O surgery simultaneously. My docs cleared me to walk anytime I felt able, so I was back on the treadmill walking super slowly 72 hours after the procedure. I was totally fine, even after all of that. While I never pushed myself, I walked for 2 weeks, then back to the elliptical. Due to the TVT-O for the bladder, I was not able to lift anything or exert strenuously for one month, but I went right back to weights and spin class at that point with no issues (I have had ankle reconstruction so I don't run, can't help you with that specifically).
All in all, I only gained about 5 pounds, which was super for me (I too gain SOOOO quickly).
I just was SUPER tired after the procedure, but I have 3 kids, night-shift husband, and a full-time and part-time job.
In spite of all I personally went through, I still will not be giving my daughter Gardasil. As it stands at this time, I do not trust that the vaccine is as safe and effective as its marketing has tried to make us believe.
