It is very usual for high performance athletes to lose weight while doing "nothing". Yes muscle wastage will be part of it but metabolism and the stress you have been through are also contributing. It'll all return to normal when your activity levels increase. Meanwhile eat chocolate - your body will appreciate it so will your well being.
Yes, happened to me also during my injury..eat moderately..
Mmmm - chocolate therapy - surpassed only by red wine in my experience but I suspect that's not your preference - doesn't usually come recommended by the medicos either for some reason ;-)
Ori I thought you said you gained weight.
Does your weight change account for the metal inserted and the casts?
I lost weight... in the first 3 months of my injury
There's bugger all metal and I had my leg brace off. The arm cast doesn't weigh much either.
After breaking my knee ligament on an emu my right thigh was several cm smaller than the left.
Ok, I can't not ask, how do you break your knee ligament on an emu?
Probably hit it whilst cycling at speed. That's how most injuries occur I hear.
Emus are protected in WA.
