Abdominal Surgery: Getting back on the Horse
I'm a cert 1 guy, looking at starting a box, fit, just turned 40. Been making some nice gains in strengths on Wendler 5-3-1. I went into the hospital for a double hernia surgery about 10 days ago. I wasn't wild about it, I already had my rehab plans made - there are certainly plenty of threads in the forum about similar issues.
Then the wheels came off. During the (laproscopic) operation the surgeon must have nicked an artery, but the gas pressure hid the cut until she pulled her instruments and called it a day. The result was massive internal bleeding and (thank God!) life saving surgery to close the artery - by which time I'd lost a fourth of my blood.
Results: Besides the possibility of losing a testicle (yikes!), I have a big ol' gash in my lower abdomen, along with less visible internal incisions that are going to be healing for about 4 more weeks. The doctor has vetoed heavy lifting until the last week of October.
So ... I'm looking for some tips about rehabilitation. When I'm ready to get back on the train, I want to be ready!
