Apr 30, 2017 · This and That and Talk - My Transplant in Transplants

Hi Rosemary,I also use Neutrogena (Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 55.  Also, my foundation has some light sunscreen.  The sunscreen is really fast absorbing and doesn’t run.  I live in Florida so the fast absorbing is very important. I do wear short sleeves and a light long sleeve blouses as a cover and Capri pants or slacks.  There are sun reflecting shirts/hats that you can buy at Sports Stores or I guess online.  Skin cancer is a problem for all transplants so it is an important battle.

Because we are likely to get skin cancer because of all the meds we take .?!

I follow the My Fitness Pal (which is free). The nutritionist at Mayo suggested I try it and I have been pleased. I walk and do light weights for upper body strength. I imagine swimming would be great, but I am not much of a swimmer. I am a heart transplant and lead the Heart Transplant Group at Mayo Florida.

Weight gain is very common. 3 rules to live by as a transplant with weight gain issues. 1. Healthy diet
2. Smaller potions 3. Daily exercise.
I agree My Fitness Pal can be helpful.
