Hey hoopers :)
So I'll admit, I've been neglecting my hoop recently; life's been pretty hectic. But a few days before I was going to start again, I was taken to hospital with suspected appendicitis.
Long story short, what actually happened was that I had ovarian cysts, which had ruptured. If anyone's had that, you'll know it's not pleasant!
So basically, what I was wondering was, am I okay to hoop?? The cysts will definitely come back so does this have a major impact on hooping in the future??
I get the feeling that hooping might prevent ovarian cysts in the future. I know absolutely nothing about health but hooping ought to bring blood flow and moar blood is almost always a good thing.
When they gave me an ultrasound for ovarian cysts a few years ago they were checking that my blood flow was good... so perhaps moar hooping bettur?
I have had this happen and omg it is terrible! I had to have emergency surgery for the internal bleeding, imo the pain from all this was way worse than giving birth.lol. but anyway. I started hooping in november 2011 ,about a year after the surgery, and I still have several benign cysts but I believe that hooping does help with the pain. If I start to have pain in that area I will waist hoop for a bit with my right foot forward ( that side is where most the cysts are) and it's kinda like a nice massage. I have worried about maybe the hoop causing one to rupture but I'd think since it helps with the pin that it'd be okay.
There's a video, I think it is Deanne Love, where its mentioned that hooping is an effective adrenal massage (under armpits, etc) so it makes sense that keeping fluid moving and improving bloodflow would be good for a body. But I'd ask the physician to be sure.
When I had cysts I was told that you may or may not get them chronically even though you are predisposed to developing them--I only had two within a ten year period. If you have concerns, can you request an ultrasound when you get your exams? They can see polyps and fibroids but not sure about cysts.
Best of luck.
