 Re: weight gain :(
Caryn    12:43pm May 18 2017

I am in a similar situation. NWB for 8 weeks and now beginning to be 50%. I had lost weight in the very beginning probably from the trauma and not having any appetite so I figured it would continue that way! Nope it is all sitting in my belly now. Though i had at home PT the focus was only on my leg and not stamina building or my core. I decided to have a trainer come to my house for a couple of sessions to show me some exercises that I could do to help the situation. While sitting I can do crunches and I am also trying to lift light weights. Though to be honest I don't always do them and I have no excuse as I certainly have the time. One thing that you might do is find a video online for seated exercises. I know they are out there.
One other thing. Not sure of your home situation but I have let my husband do almost everything thing for me rather than get up and get it for myself. It is so much work to put the boot back on if I'm icing and to carry things is very tricky. But I am now trying to do much more which is making me be more active and burn more calories, It's not fun at all and i am really looking forward to when this is all behind me. I hope this helps.
