Spinning happily @ 5 months
« on: April 02, 2014, 09:01:25 AM »
Just an update folks.My initial slow progress due to blood clots at 9 weeks is now a dim memory.raising a sweat on my spin bike.Tad wobbly on my road bike but will wait til off the warfarin in 3 months.Can spin quite happily for 90 minutes plus, walk 8-10 ks and swim countless laps at the pool.Admittedly I've stacked on a lot of weight post op but plan to be back at pre surgery weight by my one year anniversary.Just today I've tried a number of yoga stretches and lunges and tried crossing my legs above the knees. Sheer bliss.Have been advised by my GP that my ankle will occasionally swell for the rest of my life due to my episode of blood clots but it's great to finally be in a good space. My biggest issue is whittling off the 18 kgs I've gained since surgery.

I am still plus 5 kg. only 2 are already gone. today, for the first time, I have seen photos Thomas made at the days in hospital. I was totally swollen! from head to toes. even now I notice swellings in the evening, especial when I was active all day.
..... I will find out
