    Supplement after surgery!

    I know I already posted that in my thread, but so that everyone knows
    In short, I had open heart surgery end of January. So imagine getting your sternum cut in two, and 6 days lying in your bed with little to no movement because of drains.
    I had severe shoulders and neck pains because of this, waking me up at 3AM.
    However, as soon as I started gym in rehabilitation, I added in the evening one or two of the upper body stretching exercises of level I (gym gave me a good idea of what I was allowed to do). This definitly helped get over those cramps! And in the WEs when we did not have gym, I took one of the full body, strength and tone level I exercises, so I could exercise daily Once a bee, always a bee.

    So even very low level exercises can be really, really helpful! Thanks again to the Dareteam for understanding that!

    Thanks for posting this outside your thread. It’s good for that to be repeated: low level exercises are also beneficial to keep us moving in any situation or condition. Post op, it’s particularly helpful to get the body going *somewhere* again, before atrophy (muscle wasting), and atelectasis (lung collapse) set in.
    Good work getting to it!! And good recovery to you!

        Thank you Louve rose Darebee is definitly a part of that recovery, specially now that winter weather (cold and lots of wind) do limit my walking outside. I was told to count up to 6 months before feeling really back to some normal...
