BarreTalk Posted July 9, 2004 Report Share Posted July 9, 2004 My surgery went fine with a textbook recovery so far. I'm now back home after 6 days in the hospital with a stapled 8" long incision in my belly. It looks awful and feels worse, but when I remember what it felt like the first day, I know I'm at least 1000% better, with more improvement every day. The doctor has given me carte-blanche to do anything that doesn't cause a bunch of pain, but no lifting anything heavier than 20 lbs for 6 weeks. The staples come out Monday, which means I can then gently stretch and start trying to regain my abdomenal muscle tone. I'd like to hear any advice from fellow adult dancers who've had to rehabilitate from abdomenal surgery. Quote Link to comment
