getting back to exercise after removal of an ovary & cyst???

had an ovarian cyst removed........I  (was) in great shape.. i worked out 4-5 days a week sometimes twice in one day...i enjoy running, kickboxing, & body pump class. ON Dec 22, 2011 almost 4 weeks ago...i had an ovary removed along with the tube & a tennis ball size cyst & a d&c.  Doctor told me it was okay to go back to my exercise routine (4 weeks post op) --he told me to listen to my body….well, I started back to my classes this weekend (easy on the ab exercises)  and ran first time outside a couple miles. I went to kickboxing this morning…but decided to skip out tonight.   But, my lower abs feel REALLY swelled.  My question is how long was it before you can really tell….that it is OKAY to run & workout normal again.  so sad here….ready to be ME again.  Like I said I  am usually an active 39 year old woman that enjoys exercise.  Thank you....

HI,
It would be best to go slow on your exercise routine. This is because internal healing will take some time. Also the exercise you are planning is of the strenuous type. Gradual increase depending on your body’s response to the exercise will be best. It may take 3 to 6 months to get back to your pre-surgery exercise routine. Hope this helps.
Take care.

Hello. I'm 14 and underwent surgery 7 months ago. I had an ovarian cyst of 20 cm removed along with one of my ovaries and with a part of the tube too. My belly is STILL SWOLLEN and whenever it comes to ab exercises, I feel uncomfortable and I totally forgot to tell my gynaecologist at the clinic.
