In July, I had open heart surgery to #1 replace a congentially deformed aortic valve, #2 to replace an aneurism in my aorta with dacron hose, and #3 to perform a "maze" procedure to eliminate atrial fibrillation.
In April, I rode a bit over 500 miles, which was my PR. Then they told me I was at risk of dying from the aneurism, so I backed off.
I think I am healed. Today, I managed 25 miles, a bit slower than pre-surgery, but it was windy.
How many of you folks have come back after Open Heart Surgery (OHS) and how long did it take you to get to pre-surgery levels? I'm a few weeks short of 58, by the way.
Actually, I'm just pretty much glad to be alive and back on the bike, but I keep wondering what the future holds.
