Hoofbeat Posted December 29, 2013 Share Posted December 29, 2013 Hi all I suffered a haemorrhage in my left occipital lobe just over 6 weeks ago; no cause has yet been found and I didn't have any surgery. I'm still suffering with fatigue, difficulty concentrating and headaches, but I'm keen to start some gentle exercise as soon as I can (my neurologist has okayed this). I used to be quite fit and now feel like I've lost so much muscle (I used to have very strong core muscles and now feel like I have none!) and am rapidly gaining weight as I'm constanty hungry! Can anyone recommend any gentle exercises other than walking (I'd rather not jog as think that will make my head worse)? I've been told not to swim on my own due to the potential of having a seizure (not that I've had any). I have sat on my horse twice since my bleed, but doing it more regularly isn't yet possible. Due to issues with my vision (I've been left with right inferior quadrantanopia) I don't feel safe cycling as I wouldn't see cars overtaking me! I'm thinking about trying some gentle pilates at home, but does anyone have any suggestions of gentle exercises I can try at home? I just want to try and so some gentle exercise to give me something to do without pushing myself too hard. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
