I am normally an active ER nurse - now off work since September, and status post ACDF 11-30-09, and stopped smoking in 11-09 as well. I feel like a slug.. I snack as I am bored and bound to the house with a cervical collar. Suggestions to reduce the weight and increase the metabolism again?
I never had to excercise before because I worked 3 - 4 tweleve hour shifts a week running around on my feet. Now I can't get into my jeans!
I know I am limited now because of the surgery - and the collar I have to wear for at least six weeks post op. I know I am off work until 3-1-09.
