Hi All! I'm excited to have found this forum! I started IP for the first time this past Thursday (which was no small feat for me with Easter - yet I stayed on track 100% even with my daughter's birthday party, lots of candy, & an amazing Easter dinner which made my mouth water like you would not believe). I will be having laproscopic surgery 4/15 to remove a large ovarian cyst & also an ablation (burning the lining of the uterus). I learned about & started IP after the surgery was scheduled. My coach is a former surgical nurse, & she said it should not be a problem, though she said I may need to add some additional food to aid in the healing process.
Do you all see any issues with continuing IP leading up to the surgery & shortly after? I am 34 & healthy otherwise.
Also, OT please talk to me about light exercise during phase 1. Can I do daily walks (2-3 miles) at a light clip of 3-3.5 mph? Coach didn't seem to think that low intensity would be an issue. I haven't had any negative side effects since starting & I haven't been hungry.
Thank you all kindly!
