After being toyed about by my HMO for over two months my shoulder surgery where two ligaments will be reattached to my rotor cuff is planned for June 30. Been riding almost my normal amount after the first two weeks. I could not have given up probably four months of cycling. My stregnth would have been gone.
So now I am told it might be two more months before my shoulder is normal.. This is been awful.. Constant numbing pain. Can't pick up much weight or it has taken several weeks before I could tie my shoe.
So I have a 430 mile tour planned in late September.. After maybe three weeks, I might be able to get on my trainer. Doctor will probably scream at me if I get out on the road before 6 weeks. Recall Ripriah on this board complained of his legs going to jello after one week. Think I can plan on my September tour.
Still do not have 100 percent of my old bike confidence back, but I am out there anyway. Probably did about 500 miles since my injury. I really ride very carefully. But ride I must.
