Theres still time to mow the lawn before it gets Dark.

Make certain the cycling is slow- You can snooze as fast as you like.

Glad to hear you're back. You know the hardest part may be staying in the ballpark of your new weight set point.

22 days post fusion

Due to time constraints, etc., only got to ride 5 miles yesterday, but did walk a couple of miles, got in good resistance exercises, and swam.

Today - Swimming, physical therapy, 10 mile bike ride.

4 weeks post fusion yesterday.

I was cleared today by the PT for a bunch more resistance exercises - pushups, planks, bridges, lat pull downs, overhead pull down, etc. They have to be done in a specific way, which is fine. I have been told that I am doing exceptionally well - due to my being in excellent physical condition prior to the surgery, and my following through on the PT.

I walked 3 miles to and from PT today, along with 45 minutes of swimming. (Too much ice and snow on the MUP to ride the bike. I am taking no chances of falling at this point.)
