Hi Dr. D!! Most importantly, THANK YOU! I am feeling so much better since you fixed me (O: Not enough thank you's in the world for that! Drains have been out x 4 days and so far so good. I do have an important question-I am an avid walker (usually) and love exercise, however after you fixed my SGAP seromas (12/8/16) I have since been very inactive on purpose as I don't want to cause any further issues. After my original bilat SGAP 9/19/16 I felt so good and slowly built up to speed walking far, and was up to 6miles 3-4 times a week which included walking over a pretty steep bridge, which I now think may have contributed/caused the seromas. I really want your advice on when it would be safe (really, really safe) to start stretching lower body and walking more than just leisurely and doing abdominal exercises-ie plank, crunches/core work-concerned as these also work lower body. I am really quite scared to do anything that will compromise all your work and cause any more setbacks so whatever your advice, I will most definitely follow. In the long term, when is it ok after repair like I had to resume aerobics with high intensity training (pushups/jumping jacks and all that crazy stuff)-the much more intense workouts? I just know me and once all the discomfort resolves I know I will want to jump right back to my old ways.
I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday!! Much love from me and my husband, you have put me back together twice now and we are both so very grateful. Thank you!!
