Mary, 60 | Cincinnati

It's been 8 months since I was told that I had stage 4 abdominal cancer, cancer in my reproductive organs and one lung.

It's been a little over a month ago since they told me that all signs of the disease were gone.

I'm trying to get my strength back so that I can get back to work, and it's been really hard for me to get back some of the muscle that I seem to have lost during the hysterectomy, my arms and legs have skin with nothing under it anymore.

Does anyone know how long it takes to get your muscles toned up again after surgery, and where in the heck did the muscles that I spent 5 years building up at work go overnight?
