First time under the knife. I am having a hernia repaired that resulted from impaling myself on the end of my mountain bike handlebars - shattering the sternum and tearing a 1" x 3" hole into the abdominal cavity. I'm told I was very lucky not to have a cardiac event, ruptured spleen and/or liver. I believe them.
I've been riding my touring bike lately and occasionally my mountian bike wearing a pressure suit for protection. They are going to repair the hole and place mesh over it (carbon I hope). I will not be allowed out on my bike for four weeks, but can ride stationary all I want.
So, what do you guys suggest for a good workout on a stationary bike? An hour in the morning and an hour in the evening or two hours once a day?
My alternative suggestion to the surgeon was to just graft a nipple on it and put a ring in. I would have three small breats. No go!
