Rowing after breast reduction surgery

Post by fancyoats » June 24th, 2023, 8:20 am

I introduced myself over on the BPP plan in the training forum a little over a month ago - I used to be on the crew team in high school and then had like 20 sedentary years and recently a couple months ago bought myself an erg and have been working through the BPP - currently about to finish out week 8. Really feeling good about the progress I’ve made, and worried about losing momentum.

I’m going in for a consult with the surgeon on Monday, hoping to get my 36Ms reduced to a more proportional size. I’m wondering if anyone here has had experience post surgery - how long did it take you to get back in shape? How long after surgery were you able to resume? What was your experience like?

Firstly, kudos on your impressive progress through the BPP! Wishing you the best for your consultation on Monday; the decision for a 36Ms reduction is a personal one. Post-surgery recovery varies, but many find gradually easing back into fitness, guided by your surgeon, is key. It's a journey—listen to your body, prioritize recovery, and celebrate small victories. The community here is supportive; others may share valuable post-surgery insights. Stay positive, and all the best for your consultation!
