Have been doing pilates to regain some strength (especially pelvic floor) and flexibility post op. I'd recommend it but you do need to find a well trained instructor and a class geared up for people recovering from surgery, especially at the beginning.
My current pilates instructor (who is also a trained Physiotherapist) mentioned 'FooFooFunclub' yesterday and asked if anyone knew anything about it. I didn't, but I've just looked it up and it looks fun, pilates-like and very focused on pelvic floor strengthening. http://foofoofunbox.com/ I wondered if anybody has given it a go and has any experience to share?
Before diagnosis I had been belly dancing for 10 years (hence my online name) and I am sure that starting with a strong core has helped my recovery. I am back to regular classes from next week and can't wait to get some sparkliness on and get back to it (gently). It really is a great low impact, fun way to exercise with lovely people and improves flexibility, posture and strength. (For info, you can be any age, shape or size and you don't have to show anything you don't want to).
I know swimming is good but I feel a bit self conscious about my body after all this and I'm not sure I'm up to wearing a swimming cossie in public yet, but I expect I'll get there in due course.
Does anybody have any other good suggestions for things we can do to get active post treatment?
