I started out running last year and was doing ok, however just before Christmas I became ill and haven't been able to run since. I go into hospital at the end of august for major abdominal surgery which sort the problem out once and for all. The problem is I'm going stir crazy not being able to do any exercise. It can sometimes be so bad that i can't walk to the end of street and I've had to give my beloved yoga.
I'm being told that it can take between 8 weeks and 12 months (!) to be fully recovered but I definitely can't wait 12 months to get back into exercise. How long do you recommend waiting before starting out again?
