A 32-year-old female asked about a 34-year-old female:
can you exercise when you have a retinal hole?

Depends: If you have a retinal hole, there is a risk that a detachment of the retina might start at that point. If you know about such a hole, someone must have evaluated you and hopefully advised you of the risks. These are sometimes surrounded with laser hits to attach the retinal well. Some holes are incomplete (requires skilled scleral depression) and may not need treatment.

Do baby exercise classes help with physical development?

No: They're fun, and they'll give you and your baby a nice opportunity to meet people and get out a bit. But no, i don't think there's any evidence that these kinds of classes actually help with development.

Slow & Gradual: Aerobic/cardiovascular exercise will eventually train the lungs and the rest of the body to handle oxygen more efficiently, but must be initiated and advanced carefully in the context of chronic lung disease. Let your symptoms guide you, realize your limitations and try not to be a hero - this will keep you safe.

Probably: Probably but i would double check with the surgeon who did the whipple. It is great that you feel like exercising 3-4 times a week after your whipple!

How to get out of this exercise/starvation mode without gaining much weight?
2 doctor answers • 5 doctors weighed in

Lower intensity: To maintain weight, get your resting metabolism rate tested. It tells you how many calories you need to maintain your weight. Exercise is good but for many, intense exercise causes hunger followed by too much food. Do more fat burning lower intensity exercise and weight training with lower weights but more repetitions to help maintain weight and muscle mass. Dont forget to drink water.
