Diep reconstruction

Finally having my stacked muscle sparing diep on 28th august. Any helpful hints and anyone who has horses when can I expect to be back riding.

Hi pennypig

Hello I am having a stacked DIEP reconstruction and am wondering if anyone has had one who rides horses? If so, has it been ok and when did you start riding again? Thank you!

Hi, I started riding again about 3 months after but took it really easy. For a while as my horse was only 5. The early weeks are the hardest when you cannot stand upright but that passes fairly quickly. I was visiting the yard for a catch up about 2.5 weeks post op. lol couldn’t keep away

I have Pm’d you
