Hi everyone - long time reader, first time poster.
I wasn't sure where to put this topic, anyway, here goes;
I recently underwent a huge surgery due to a intestinal-disease. Had my entire larger intestine removed, lived with an ostomy for 7 months, needless to say, I haven't been able to lift any weights throughout all this. I finally had my ostomy reversed, and I'm anxiesly awaiting to get back into shape and pack on some much needed muscle.
Unfortunately, due to the surgery, I am not able to sleep throughout the night. I wake up twice every single night, having to go to the bathroom. This results in me, lying awake for about 15 minutes before falling asleep again.
My question is, will this influence on any possible gains? I haven't been able to find an answer anywhere.
I might be making a big deal out of nothing.
