Hello. I am starting my Whole30 on Saturday May 21. I wonder if there are any other breast cancer members here. I have some digestive/weight issues from my cancer medications and, also, ptsd. Hopefully, this program will be helpful for its anti-inflammatory benefits and for me/us to become stronger in the battle. OncoWarrior fighting cancer one day at a time
Hi I am a 39 year old mom who has had the vertical sleeve operation (similar to bypass just not the small intestine to put it simply.) i am a healthy weight and workout all the time, I LOVE IT! I will say I replaced my food addiction with excercise. I also have PCOS and a very recently found lump in my breast. While the radiologist says maybe benign he couldn't be sure for another TWO years of testing and my OB/gyn said NOPE! You are seeing a breast cancer dr. She got me in rather quickly and I see him Monday. This has put a lot of things in my life in perspective. I bought the whole 30 book knowing that A) it is NOT A cure for cancer but it is definitely not going to hurt me (sugar has been showen to "feed" cancer) and B.) I need to get my life, sorry, healthy back on track! So I was planning on starting in 1 week, but tonight I decided to wait to see what the dr says. My OB told me if he wants to remove it that it would give me an answer now and not in two years so if he suggests surgery my husband and I decided to do it. Okay so onto my question how long should I wait after surgery (if I have to have it) to start whole 30? Keep in mind it is a relatively minor surgery. I am feeling so out of control of my life and health right now I need to plan even if it's just a start time frame! Thank you so much!
IowaSusan posted a topic in Join the Whole30Hi, everybody! I'm a newbie, reading all I can and looking for others with similar health issues who either are just starting out or who have had some successes already! I am also (almost) a 3-year breast cancer survivor with PMR (Polymyalgia Rheumatica) and wicked nightly/early morning leg cramps. I've done Paleo before, but it was hard to stick with (SWYPOs got me, I think!). Anyhow, I'm on Day 5 and my joints feel a little better, I think, but the extreme leg cramps are still going--and I'm still a little tired and headachey. I'm having fun finding recipes and being creative in the kitchen. If anyone else has any experience with any of the above health issues and Whole30, or if you have favorite recipes, please let me know. I'm optimistic and looking forward to getting to know other Whole30ers! Thanks, Susan
