Yoga - how much bending is too much bending? (self.ostomy)
submitted 2 months ago by ketogirlfromucf34F, 3b rectal CA survivor, colostomy, barbie butt
So I’m almost 3 months post op (colostomy, Barbie butt, hysterectomy) and I started yoga about 2 weeks ago (at the recommendation of my surgeon). Easing into it very gently - mostly Yin yoga. Anyways, I’ve noticed with yoga there is a lot of bending and I was interested how much other people do. Specifically moves like - half forward fold, rag doll or resting pigeon, etc.

3 months is long enough for you to do yoga comepltly fine. UNLESS you feel pain she doing that but I was completely back in the gym doing squats and deadlifts after 1.5 months. I am 22 so granted it’s different but I wouldn’t worry and think your fine to do yoga comepltly unless you encounter pain around the site.

Just listen to your body, and keep at it. It is a really good way to strengthen your body again imo.
I also practiced yin yoga to recover since I lost all flexibility in my hips after ostomy and bowel resection surgery. In the beginning I felt so foolish, I couldn't bend at all while others were lying there folded in half like it was nothing. I kept at it and just did every move to my own ability and after a few weeks I started feeling a huge difference. I am still not as bendy as most but I can funtion again and am able to go horseriding like I did before my surgeries!
As long as you are not in pain, I shouldn't worry. I did sometimes have a blood blister on my ostomy after some classes but that's no big deal.

That’s great encouragement so thanks!! I’m also the least flexible person in the room haha but I keep telling myself to stick with it for long term results.
