I'm new, my intro
Hi everyone! This forum is great! I used to pay to be a member of a similar forum but I ditched them and thought I might move in here if its ok with you all.
I'm 29, married with 4 kids (and I'm done for sure! I'm 4 weeks post op TAH!! Woohoo!). I'm an RN but I'm not working right now because my kiddos are really little (22 months - 7 years). I was lifting 4x a week, on a split rutine and doing HIIT every morning before my surgery, but now I can't even do a sit up (I had an abdominal incision, they split the muscles apart and pull them open wide...). I have the clearence from my doc to start working out again, but basically I know I'm starting all over again. I'm 5'7" and weigh about 120-125lbs with body fat around 18, probably 20 now after 4 weeks of not working out at all (I haven't gained weight though). Anyway, thats all I can think of for an intro but if I missed something important let me know.

Welcome to AR
don't rush to be where you were at pre surgery...muscle memoray is a truly good thing.....and it will come back...just start off slow and light.....
you may want to apply some vit E to your insicion once healed, it will help w/ the healing process and mi nimize your scar...
