wondering how long the typical recovery is from a bout with Rhabdomyolysis?

i did some GHDs on Friday May 28 and started showing systems on the sunday and monday following the GHDs. the brown pee went away after two days, but i felt like i had a dehydration hangover for several days and had really sore stomach mucscles.

my doctor says that i can resume weight lifting and doing some easy bike rides, but that i need to stay hydrated. she did comment that she's never seen rhabdo before in 20 years.

To full recovery, you're looking at weeks, not days. Rhabdo is serious #%*&.

If it's a less severe case... AKA a LONG case of DOMs likely for 7+ days then you're talking about maybe 2-3 weeks.

If you were peeing the brown then it's likely it's going to take at least 4-8 weeks to recover. Work back in EXTREMELY slowly as it's easy to retear stuff and aggravate it which will set you back additional time.

You may not even have strength back to where you were after 6-8 weeks. Some people I know did... some people didn't. So don't sweat it if your strength is coming back very slowly.
