I'm new and I got tons of questions to ask !

If the plan is to slide your feet under the bars and pull your body up, I'd say no way! If the plan is to hold the bars with your hands and lift your legs straight up into the air, or with bended knees, maybe. That at least only puts a minimal amount of pressure on the tush.

As always, check with your doctor. Waiting a week or two could make all the difference. You don't want to undo anything for the sake of a 6 pack!

I think you should consider yourself lucky that you have got rid of this pilo as you know that once it garbs hold it does not let go as easily. Make sure you do not add any pressure to the wound when exercising. I know once you have healed you feel like starting other things that you could not do but be careful.

@Really
Well .. You have to make her understand importance of education on her own .. My mother never told me "go to study or something like that" .. Life wasn't so nice for me ..My parents are divorced etc .. and all other problems when you have to be "head" of let's call it family since it's only me and my mother living together now .. now I have to be that "head" and I'm going to do my best to help my mother. I'm still young and I'm precocious (don't know if it's good word) I act like an "adult" instead of my friends whose mental level is so immature. Physically You can't see any particular difference but when you actually just start talking you can see difference.

This disease already took away something I loved to do.. but You have to stay strong and never give up ! You can beat it . Soon I'll be dry & closed for 2 months! I'm feeling alright .. I'm reading a lot and sitting a lot but I don't feel any pain .. I make pauses every 10-20 min :S and I hope it will stay closed. Greetings from Bosnia! [^^]

I didn't forget you my friends. I'm just doing alright,I got problems with tootache like 10 days back. My wound is alright I hope so. I'm not really taking care so much about it. I clean it regulary but I don't take shower every day , I'm actually very busy with school and everything,I'm spending a lot of time sitting too :( I don't know if it can be serious,but I'm feeling alright. I hope you're doing alright,I'm really going to start showering again I just can't w8 for higher temperature outside because I got some very complex problems .. but I'm sure I'll do alright,I planned to go jogging every morning at start of spring,you think I'm ready for that after 12 months? Just to mention,I'm dry & alright since 1.8.2009. I think I'm ready to step back into "old" life again,jogging,gym etc :S? and u?
