I really have avoided asking this on the board but doctor isn't being very helpful.
About 2 years ago I was diag. with PC and had brachy treatment. Early this year I developed a BAD infection that shut everything down and required I have turp surgery. Had the surgery in mid July.
As I love my riding time even though I'm not a hard rider I was doing 15-20 miles a day at my nice slow pace with stops in the park and for coffee etc. Other problem is I heal slow as I am a type 2 diabetic.
I asked my doctor today if I could ride again if I could stand the pain. He hymned and hawed and then finally said get a gel seat ,add a gel cover and use riding shorts with the pad !!! apparently the pressure on the peritinium (sp) is not cool with these conditions. Yes I know a recumbent might work but I really like my raleigh and my old puch mixte and would like to be able to continue riding them. I'm only about a quarter mile from the mup and it runs along the river and is such a nice way to spend a day.
Anyone else had similar problem,was it solveable, how etc. I'm 66 and miss my excercise and time outside.
Hate the medical crap and getting old, but like someone told, me it beats the options.
