I have my surgeon's OK to go to a yoga class. I'm excited, but cautious. I used to go to classes all the time, but I haven't had the energy to go much in the last few years (I do about ten minutes at home most days). I kept up swimming, more or less, before I got so, so sick this year, but I'm not allowed to swim (or take a bath) yet because my butt wound is not healed, still draining etc. (it's two months out of surgery, but I've had complications). I am just so stiff in my neck, shoulders, etc, and I think a class (or ten, plus some massages) will help.
I'll go to a gentle class, but I know I have to be super careful and probably won't be able to do a lot of the poses yet. I'm assuming it should be fairly obvious what I shouldn't do (or my body will tell me when I try), but wondering if anyone has any thoughts, tips, etc.
I have a wrap to wear over my pouch.
ps -- Funny story. In my first hospitalization of the year, before the surgery, I was starting to feel better and was off an IV for a bit, so I went to the patient/family room to stretch, because it's carpeted. I was alone there and doing the plow pose, which from the back kind of looked like I was passed out on my stomach (with one knee tucked under). I had a very good nurse, and she walked by, was very alarmed, and started to call a code on me! I felt awful when I realized what was going on, because she really was shaken up, but it sure was funny afterward.
