Hi all, I’m new here and have been trying to find an answer to this question and wondered if anyone has been through this or knows the answer! I’ve been T1 for 29 years and am also a runner. I’ve run all my life and it’s a massive part of who I am, it’s not just exercise to me! Have been pretty much complication free, but background retinopathy noted at the last couple of eye checks. Just over 2 weeks ago I had a sudden vitreous haemorrhage and as a result of that have been diagnosed with proliferative retinopathy in both eyes! At the time of diagnosis the consultant told me I couldn’t run, swim, jump or lift heavy weights for 2 weeks. This is not currently a problem as I’m also recovering from a stress fracture in my foot. I have my first pan retinal laser session tomorrow and have been doing google research (I know this is not a good idea) and the information I’ve seen suggests running is not advisable at all with proliferative retinopathy. I’m now in full panic mode as I know that proliferative retinopathy cannot be cured but perhaps can eventually be stabilised/burnt out with treatment. Would I be able to return to running if/once the condition is stabilised it will I now never be able to run again because of this complication? I’m otherwise in good health, pretty tight BG control, cholesterol, BP all very good, eat very healthy plant based diet. Getting very stressed by the thought of never being able to run again. I’d normally go out for a run to un-stress myself but can’t! Also noticed yoga is advised against - this makes me sad as when I practice a lot of yoga too! Any info or experience with this topic gratefully received!!
