It has been a little over 10 weeks since the surgeon pounded four pins into my femur, and I still need the crutches to get around. However, things are beginning to brighten a bit. In less than 4 weeks, I ought to be back in the saddle.
Rehab efforts have been quite a challenge. It took me about 2 weeks just to get back to work. It took 2 more to get to where I could move my leg without feeling throbbing pain. After 6 weeks, I was finally able top put significant weight on it. And, today, I can walk up to 20 feet without using the sticks. This is miles from where I once came.
So, my goal is to hit my 30 mile commute at least once before the end of the season. I am hoping to take my shot at it around Mid-Auggy. But, to be honest, I will be happy to just ride a few miles pain-free.
