Re: Running/gym

Hi. I try to keep myself in shape always, it was especially difficult to do this after giving birth. Now in one of my favorite stores activewear sale, a huge selection of sports items for fitness and yoga, which I do.

I still think that a man over 50 no longer has as much strength as a young guy of 20, and this is worth understanding. and training 4 times a week for 30 years is already a very big load on your body and muscles, of course. And back pain is called old age.)) Yoga and the gym are certainly good, but I say that you need to know when to stop at your age. At the expense of the legs, you should alternate your legs, but still put the emphasis on the smaller one, the steroid YK11 can also help, I read in this article https://sarmguide.com/sarms-guide/ that it helps to increase muscle mass, and so the most important thing for you is strengthening the bones and joints of the legs ... And for the fact that you have been doing your favorite sport for so long, deserves respect))

Denzel, you really need to check with your Onco. Every one is so different with healing times etc, and also you need to be careful re Lymphodaema . I ignored advice re gardening, heavy lifting etc and have 1% Lymphodaema in my right arm. I had full WLE. I do go to the gym 3x week but mainly cycling, bit rowing, lots swimming and stretching classes. Took over a year to get my energy back, but you sound a lot younger than me. I’m 72. Best wishes in your fitness quest. X

My physio helped with this part of my recovery. I go to CrossFit classes and wanted to do them after my reconstruction- my understanding is that you can do normal exercise 6 weeks after, ask to see specialist physio, they should be able to help.

Thanks. Yeah I’ll give it a couple of months then ease myself back in again.

Re: Running/gym

I’d ring the breast care nurse who will be able to look at your notes. I had conflicting advice about using the gym and all I was asking about was leg-strengthening and stamina stuff. On the Moving Forward course after I’d completed the full menu of treatments, it was assumed we were all exercising, yet I’d been told not to. It must be an individual case issue. The important thing is not automatically returning to your former exercise regime without being shown the ideal way to lift weights to strengthen your breast/chest wall and minimise the chance of damage because even a lumpectomy does a little muscle-damage.

 

Currently my gym membership is for cups of tea! Good luck x

What is the recommended time after surgery can I start running and going to gym. Also how long after surgery can I start lifting weights etc or doing body pump? I had a lumpectomy and WLE with 3 sentinial nodes removed in June but wound has only just healed
