Well almost three weeks ago I had a routine colonoscopy which turned out great. The following week I had surgery for a inguinal hernia on the left side of my groin. When I was growing up I always got that "look" from the doctor when doing the cough test.
The surgery was just over two weeks ago and my surgeon cleared me to ride my bike yesterday, just said take it easy... Rode the exercise bike last night for ten miles and did an easy 16 mile ride after work today at avg of 16.5.
It sure felt great to be back on the bike. Still sore some in the groin and scrotum but we'll see how it goes. Wanting to get back in shape for some big rides at the end of the month and in November.
My surgeon said my recovery would go fast because I was in shape and was not "fat". Yes he used the word fat! Made me feel good He said most people half my age do not recover as fast.
