Working out with a colon re-section and loop ileostomy

Post by deanmadonia »

Does anyone have experience with working out after a colon re-section and loop ileostomy? I had surgery Jan 23rd, and I’m home now. Super bummed about missing class and I want to get back ASAP, but my doc says 6-10 weeks and 10lb weight limit. This is very frustrating to me.
I am planning on returning for Kata only then, w no contact until the loop is reversed.

I don’t want to injure myself permanently by coming back to soon, but I have been out over the years for other major injuries and I don’t want to lose it all again and start from scratch. Again.

Is there anyone out there who has been through this and has any advice?
