I have a client that I am beginning with and she used to exercise regularly using treadmill and eliptical machine. She had a major hysterectomy surgery done 8 weeks ago and wants to begin with a trainer to get back into shape. She has not been able to exercise AT ALL, so she is pretty much starting fresh. Any tips/suggestions from any of you out there who may have worked with a client post hysterectomy surgery?
Hello Melissa Sigler,
I agree that you will want to get her physician’s clearance to exercise with any restrictions.
Everyone recuperates differently; so, start slowly from the beginning.
Since she used to exercise regularly, the transition should not be all that too long or difficult as compared to a sedentary person in the same boat.
Make sure to have clear communication with her and her doctor throughout the process.
