Howdy all, With 2 weeks to go I visited the Surgeon today... We talked about a few things and I told him I had being doing a lot of research and found "2 camps".... One that says rest and heal and the other that says get stuck into it... He was with the latter and said basically use it or lose it. I am old enough to make my own decisions however and will let my body tell me what to do. Also mentioned about me wanting to be able to kneel again, he said he had already noted that down (and showed me) and said he will make the incision at the side of my knees, not the front and also mentioned that it was being done more often, apparently. The other bizarre thing is the last week I have never felt better, can even do a full revolution on the bike.. Amazing.. Will enjoy it whilst it lasts. As I have had lower back surgery apparently they won't give me an epidural, WOOHOO Now as long as I don't have a catheter I will be very happy !
