Fit with Crohn's Disease
As any crohn's or chronic disease sufferer knows, fit with Disease can be an oxymoron. I had a sub total colectomy (my colon removed) 1 year ago, my ileostomy reversal 6 months ago, and am now fighting active crohn's in my small intestine. I'm determined to fight with nutrition an exercise and be fit while sick! Anyone else out there struggling? Maybe chronic Lime's, gastroperisis, Crohn's, IBS, whatever it is, I'd love to hear from you! Let's be fit while sick together
That's a great idea. I'm so sorry to hear she has crohn's, but it sounds like she's a real trooper. There are definitely some good quick workouts. I couldn't find exactly what I wanted so I created my own! She could have an arms day, a legs day, a core day or full body day. Feel free to try out one of mine! Stability balls make working out so much more fun! You can really diversify your programs with a combination of a medicine ball, stability ball, 5lb resistance band, and a kettle bell or dumbbell. I will say a prayer for your sister. Good luck!
Ha ha I appreciate your confidence! Are you the lead in a band? I happen to love writing! Just bought studio one and an audiobox to start recording. Loving my NT1 mic too. Would love to hear about your band!
Hi, fellow Crohn's Disease sufferer here.
Was diagnosed in 2012 after almost dying. Ended up with a loop Ileostomy and a scar from hips to ribs.
Had a total colectomy (no colon, rectum, or anus) in 2014 after the doctors realised that things were just too damaged. I now have a permanent Ileostomy and a bunch of complications that I am learning to work around.
Its taken 3+ years to get to the stage that I am actually allowed to exercise again and now I've got to work out how to exercise without doing damage.
Sad thing is, is that I had got to the point that I was reasonably fit before this. Now its hard enough to go shopping without being totally useless for the next 2/3 days.
