From Pumping Milk to Pumping Iron...
I crack myself up sometimes with these Titles!
I had my 6 week post-op appt today. I asked about these two topics.
PUMPING MILK: Currently I am pumping 4 times a day for approx 20 min. She said when I am ready to stop to eliminate a pump session every 3-4 days. Until I am down to one then cut that time in 1/2 for a couple days and my body should get the hint. So according to that schedule I should plan on a 2 week step program.
PUMPING IRON: Currently I am pumping 3 times a week for approx 10 min. She said when I am ready to increase weights, listen to my body. I emailed Raphael (my exercise guru). He thought my exercise schedule of weights and walking was perfect for me at this stage of rehabilitation. He suggested over the next 2 weeks to increase my walking to build up my energy. So according to that schedule I should plan on a 2 week step program in this area, too!
