Mani here Age 33. I am 5 months post kidney Tx. I go to gym regularly. I also have a fistula on my right arm. My Q is , IS there a limit to the amont of weight i can lift with my right arm cause of fistula.
Also wht king of protein shake can i take? I mam not taking any right now. Is it safe? I will discuss this with my doc as well.
Thx .. Mani !
Hi, Mani: I had to start rebuilding the many small muscles that affect stability by using those elastic bands wrapped around one ankle then extending that leg outwards, forwards, and backwards (as many reps as possible per set) while balancing on the other leg. Do several sets on each leg and you will find this slight resistance makes a big difference. Good luck and welcome to the post-transplant world. Enjoy every day. :)
Hi Folks ..
Mani here Age 32. I am 5 months post kidney Tx. I have started the gym recently [along with raquetball] and want to focus on strength training. I have lost weight post tx [i never gained weight after tx rapidly.] I was 72kg when health. I was 57kg after tx. today i m 60kg. My fitness has definitely improved by i still have to follow a routine. Can anyone suggest a routine/link for strength training. How about improving balance using my own weight.
For those interested i am on cellcept. Cyclosporine and predinsolone. Still have some acne due to prednisolone but doc is reducing it so it will go away soon.Comments are welcome.
I've got to say that I think running/walking plus some strength training (pushups, situps, etc.) seems to work best. I had a heart txp 3 years ago. Before all of the issues that led to that I was a sub 2:30 marathoner. I was able to go back to running a couple of months after the surgery. Not at that level, but I've worked my way up to about 7 miles a day at about a 12 minute pace. I've been very fortunate to have had almost no post txp problems. As long as I don't push things too much, this seems to work ok.
Hi everyone, I like swimming, and I would like to know your experience after transplant. I had my kidney transplant three years ago and feeling fine, I have osteoporosis and I exercise twice a week. I swim in a gym, does someone go swimming?
Ella- great-did you have a baby after tx?
And my diet... I am trying not to eat to late. All that is working for me. I lost almost all my baby fat after my pregnancy.
