    Hi Michelle

    Will I be able to do the same abdominal exercises after a bladder prolapse op. to strengthen my abdominal muscles. I have done some weight training and yoga for many years, after having a very bad skiing accident which shattered my first lombar vertebre. The specialist I went to suggested weight training to tighten all my muscles as my spine was such a mess surgery was somewhat chancy. I had a hysterectomy many years ago, and consequently had a bladder lift when I was 37. I am now 74 and still very active. I am worried that if my muscles get weak my old injury will start bothering me again, which seems to happen whenever I stop exercising.
    I find your videos very helpful and have already started to practice them before the operation which is on the 16th July. Also I would like to have your book, however I would like to know if your book is compatible with an E reader (Sony). before I decide whether to get the hard copy or the internet download. Listening to your videos I realize that I would have benefited from
    your knowledge all those years ago. Thanks.
