Alright I realize that I had surgery less than a month ago, but I am wondering how long I have to wait before I start working out again. In addition I also play on an indoor soccer team every winter. If it starts mid-end of January do you think that I am ok to play on the team again this winter? For those who don't know the surgery I had: 1 foot of ileum removed, ileocecal valve, bit of colon and appendix removed as well. I am just feeling ready to start my weight loss program, and exercise is an intregal part of losing the darn prednisone weight and getting healthy. Thanks everyone for the help!
