Hi, I'm a new member and I was wondering if anyone else was struggling with weight loss after surgery.
I had my surgery this past January, but since I found out that I was needing to go in for my 3rd open heart surgery I had a bit of a pity party for months. The holiday's didn't help much either. I thought that I would loose weight in recovery, but I did not. I wasn't eating horribly either.
I did go through 20 sessions of cardiac rehab, which I had read about here! It was great to get moving again. I have since joined the gym and have been treating my workouts as rehab, and working mostly on cardio.
I am hesitant to do a lot with my chest as I am still experiencing pain and my Dr. wants me to do 40 minutes of cardio. I know that I do need to eat better, so that is something that I need to get better on.
I just wondered if anyone else had these struggles, and with the semi limitation of my body right now it's a different experience than in the past when I wasn't physically limited.
