    Hysterectomy and now quitting smoking

    Hi all. I am 46 y/0 and had an elective hysterectomy on December 18th to prevent ovarian cancer as I have a family history. I am a type 1 diabetic, have high cholesterol and after surgery, my blood pressure was starting to really get high. I am literally a ticking time bomb. I am not quite through day one and and am seriously just needing some support. Not only do I feel like I am totally going to loose my mind, I am emotional and just want to lay in my bed and cry. I have quit many times before and the last time I used exercise, but I have not been cleared to exercise yet. Help!!

    RE: Hysterectomy and now quitting smoking

    I think even everything you're going through is normal not to mention it's a lot. I think anyone in your position would be burying their head under the covers and crying for weeks. Just holding it together should be a credit to you. Things will get better you just have to give you sell some time. You don't have to be cleared to exercise in order for you to do things like leg lifts in a chair or arm raises. Yes I know their senior exercises because I've done with my dad. Who cares what kind of exercises they call them if they give you exercise. I know it's hard but I think you'll do good as long as you keep your head in the game. This is not easy because if it was people would quit all the time. Hell I would have quit years ago when my mom was in the hospital on life support. But obviously that wasn't the case and now laying in a hospital bed I am one week free but obviously still not through the battle. I gots lots of tactics and place and a lot of good friends to give me support and I think that's the best you can do. They're even text Services now that will text you and you can let them know if you're craving for example or if you are having a bad day Etc message me anytime and I hope that this gives you some calming heartfelt warmth myfriend
