So I'm facing a bit of a health crisis this week. I just found out I have appendicitis.:(
They haven't operated yet as they're waiting to see if it will heal on it's own this week.
I tried to hoop to see if it was actually feeling better but felt some pain pretty quickly. I'm guessing I'll probably need surgery soon.
So my question is to anyone who may have dealt with this. If you had surgery, how long did it take before you could hoop again? I know there's a 4 week recovery period afterward and that will JUST be in time before my next session of teaching hoop classes begins in April.
My fingers are crossed that I will be in good working order again to be able to teach. It's been a week of no hooping and I'm already missing it so much.
Listening and trying to respect my body,
Never too much TMI..haha! This is SO relieving to hear. I was worried it would take a lot longer and then some again to get back into hooping shape. Nothing's ruptured yet so hopefully it will be a quick and uneventful recovery!
Thank you for sharing Willow :)
I just had suregery on my abdomen Jan 12th... Of course my brand new LED hoop showed up ont he 18th and I couldnt do a thing. It was 2 weeks before I picked up my hoop again, and I could only do off body stuff because the movement of my torso was siff and swollen. At 3-4 weeks I could waist hoop again but it still was tender over the incsions so I used my hand flat over my belly to pass over that part. Depending on how much you rest, how helathy you are etc, you should be back to hooping in 3-4 weeks. I reccommend resting the first 2 weeks completley so you can get back into it sooner. I started trying a little to soon (even just with isolations) and was sore from it.
Tip: Zinc is not only good for an immune boost, but it helps tissue regernation... So it actually helps you heal from surgery more quickly. Take care of yourself! <3
I'll remember the zinc and to take it easy for a couple of weeks. Thanks for the well wishes and advice! <3
Looks to be surgery tomorrow unless I'm miraculously totally healed on my ultrasound in the morning.
