wondering

So I have to work today, ya. So it has been 11 days since my septoplasmo procedure, septum correction. I am really wanting to go for a ride. Breathing has never been better. I had no black eyes, just some soreness after words. The pain has receded, and I took my bike to the shop today to have a few minor thing's done, including having the cartridge switched to my new rear wheel.

I figure I can start riding to work on Wednesday, and take the bus home for the first couple days if I have too. I just want to ride my bike. I never thought I would jone's for riding my bike.
Plus I have new rims to break in

Go for it, but maybe start short to see how it goes. Sounds like you're doing great.

Nice, I had a septoplasty four years ago. Give yourself some extra time, I remember going for a walk the week after and having to sit down every 200 yards. Was extremely frustrating as I did not expect it to kick my ass that much.

I had that happen to me last week four days after the procedure. Since I was using the light rail for transportation to work. Which is about four blocks from my house. By the time I got to work I was sweating and light headed. That sucked.

Jesus, you went to work that soon? I took a full week off, if not more. Of course, I was working groundskeeping at the time, so the "no lifting or exertion" would have rendered me about as helpful as your average lawn ornament.

I scheduled it for a Thurs, which is my Friday. Than took of Sunday, and Monday, returned to work on Tuesday. So actually five days after. I do milieu management at a local homeless shelter, so not a lot of lifting for me. Which allowed me to return so soon. Yes it hurt like hell, but not bad. Heck I could breath which was a huge deal for me. So it was worth it.
