Well, I'm a mom, 37, I am 11 weeks post op and working out, biked 12 miles yesterday and lifting 20 - 45 pounds at the gym and doing cardio. Getting strong, loving it! When I came on this site I got really scared because I'm an active person. Healthy beside my Kidney not working, The idea of another year of feeling shitty was bumming me out. But my Dr's at Rush in Chicago encouraged me to walk, and after 6 weeks ride a bike and after 8 weeks ride a horse cause I'm an competitive dressage rider. I'm working out, biking, Swimming, this is 11 weeks after my transplant. So if your reading this and you just got a transplant! Get out there, I did a yoga class at three weeks post op, I did the streatching parts that I could or I would just lay there meditating if it was to hard. This is your recovery, your life, and as you know it's precious... Get out there and go a little farther everyday... Listen to your body and your Dr, everyone is different...
