Femoral break - update

I am happy to say that six months after operation I have no signs of AVN (avascular necrosis). I was given 10% chance of coming out with no AVN and it seems at this stage that prognosis is good.
I have increased my mileage since this good news and am appreciating life a lot more.
Keep riding and take care.

So glad to hear from you, berts. I think about you every now and then - riding those Israeli roads, and the great pictures you send along. I am so glad you are achieving such a complete recovery. Send us some more pics when you get a chance.

berts....That is great news. I was thinking of you this week so am glad you posted. A couple with whom I occasionally ride is in your country for two weeks to celebrate the holidays. Take care and keep spinning.
