TTC After a Loss

Exercise after hysteroscopy/D&C

I forgot to ask my OB after my surgery when I can exercise and I'm reading a million different things on Dr. Google. My ute was messed up after my initial D&C, and the OB said she did another while she was in there on Tuesday. Did anyone get advice from their Dr's? She's also very laid back about things and told me I could do things like go in a hot tub after my last D&C, so I'm not sure if I trust her. For the record, I won't be using her again if the future when/if I get pg again.

Do you think going on the elliptical machine is ok? Maybe a little running in the next few days? I'm thinking I'll lay off the hard core Jillian Michaels DVD, but I feel like I neeeeeeeed to do something and workout. But I'm afraid to do anything because I've already had problems with D&C "complications". 

TIA

Re: Exercise after hysteroscopy/D&C

  • I would wait 2 weeks before doing any type of workout. If you must do somthing just go on short walks with DH. 

    Glad your getting a new OB!

    I know how itchy you are to get back to "normal," pkaren, but I'd agree with stlucia on this one. Though I don't have any medical/personal knowledge to back up that opinion, I just think that it's not worth the risk of things not healing properly. (With that being said, I was on a 5-mile hike 3 days after my D&C--not the wisest choice, probably.)

    Enjoy some nice romantic evening walks, holding hands with DH, and know the elliptical and Jillian will be waiting for you when you're ready!

    My doc recommended waiting 2 weeks, and she said to take it easy. Nothing too strenuous. I kept to light to brisque walks, no running until about week 3 post D&C. Your doc seems off base compared to mine! My doc said no hot baths or hot tubs for at least 2 weeks. Good luck and I hope you find another OB you feel comfortable with.

  • That's nuts that she didn't give you a window.  After I had my cysts removed, she told me two weeks "or whenever I felt comfortable doing so".  Even that I thought was odd, but when two weeks hit I started with a spinning class (and not my usual running) thinking that would be easier.  I have no idea what I was thinking!  I think elliptical would be a good way to ease in though.

    Thanks everyone! Looks like I have a good excuse to slack off for another week. Considering I basically work out to counteract all my alcohol calories, it looks like I'm going to have to lay off the drinks! :(

    I had really terrible cramps, but the OB said my cervix was completely blocked up tight and she had to work her way in. They gave me morphine, which took away the pain, but made me throw up for the rest of the night! I felt ok by the next day. I was completely out for it, so I didn't have to go through it awake at least! GL with yours!
