I’m female, 50, 5 foot 6 and 18 stone.
Three days ago I had rotator cuff surgery - a revision of a previous recent repair. In the 5 months since the previous surgery I’ve gained a stone
I had to get this second op done privately because of my weight (I’d have had to lose 5 stone for the NHS to consider me), and instead of thinking that I’ve ‘got away with it’ because I’m lucky enough to have medical insurance through my work and so can keep up my unhealthy lifestyle, I’m trying to change.
So, Huel is on the recovery menu! I’m having two 3-scoop shakes during the day and a normal meal at night.
I’m not able to do any exercise at all for about 6 weeks (my shoulder is immobilised) and even after that I’ll need to take things gently for 6 months.
Does Huel post surgery seem a good idea? I’m unable to cook with one arm and am at the tender mercy of my mother in law who’s food groups are lard, sugar and half-a-pig, so I needed a plan!
Does anyone have any experience of Huel-fuelled recuperation?
Side note…I haven’t had a cigarette since the op either…
