Does this mean permanent muscle loss!? What kind of rehabilitation is done??? What diet should be adhered to???

Good luck in your recovery, friend. Take it easy.

She has been taking finals the last two weeks and this is her last week, but she is leaning towards cutting packaged food from her diet (no paleo, not interested or pushed for) once finals are over in addition to getting back into the gym. Her doctor encouraged her to get back to exercising this week, actually. Every case is different, though, so don't take her experience as recommendations for anyone elses.

"Death Before DNF"???
