I had my colon resected on July 25th, open surgery...lovely scar running all down my stomach, but that's hardly the point.
Before I had surgery I was doing weight training/cardio 3-4 days a week. I have not been given the go ahead yet from my surgeon but am really wanting to get back to it.
Mainly, I'm wanting to work on my leg muscles since, somehow, during the surgery or the epidural, I went numb through my entire quadicep on my right leg. I'm doing PT, but feel like I could help it along with some light weight training on some of the machines at the gym.
Thoughts on how soon I can get started? I really don't care if people at the gym see me walking with a cane! I'd also like to get started before I start Chemo on Sept. 11. I'll have more questions on that one soon!
