Post-IV Running

So I've been on an intravenous drip at the hospital the past few days. I'm still feeling a bit queasy right about now. I was wondering when would be the safest time to run? A day after? Or a couple?

 

Thanks in advance.

    Re: Post-IV Running

    I'd check with your doctor. I get IV treaments every 8 weeks, or so, that last for four hours; I've been told there's no reason to not exercise the same day, but I try to make it a shorter workout.


    I think your situation/answer would also depend upon why you were getting an IV--infection, illness, dehydration, etc.

    Yeah, listen to your body..............and when in doubt, walk for awhile, see how things go, you can always break into running from there right?

     

    This forum is like chancing upon an alcoholics anon site in the intensity of addiction people have to their running, my God, its astounding.

     

    I have met many old people who never ran in their life...........so let's all please keep running in perspective when we have other issues as well in life.
