Unexpected Downfall to weight loss *Little Graphic & Personal
Jan 23, 2021
This year, not much is going on. We are trying to keep active as much as possible but with corna and an unexpcted downfall to weight loss; we have not been able to do much in the way of hiking, running, exerciseing. And yes I said downfall to weight loss lol.
So with my weightloss I have the overwhelming feeling of getting my life back. And not looking to neglect this gift I have been trying to use it to experience as much of life as I can. By doing this I have noticed a change in my body. Something that even the doctors said was the opposite of what normally happens but is completely normal. So with running, hiking and any other stess activities I started "leaking" My doctor put me on med but that did not help. I thought I was going to have to deal with wearing pads or diapers at an early age. Last year I happen upon a device that is incerted that springs into place putting pressure on the bladder that needs support. The problem is that it can only be used occasionaly. So I started talking to my doctor and she sugested that I speak to urologist. I found out that there is an operation that basically does the same thing on a more perminint bases. My doctor said that normaly when a person loses weight, he or she regains the muscles and support. But in my case since I was becoming much more active than ever this is why I am having the leaking more now than before weight loss.
So yet again, I went under the knife in December (RYN was Dec as well). I underwent the surgery that placed a sling; a sort of hammock under my urethra supporting my bladder. I am still under restriction and can not run, hike, lift more than 10lbs, or exercise until Feb 9th. So my weight loss has stalled again. But I look forward to when my restriction is lifted and I can see if the leaking stops.
