Jean.. I just got back from my last visit with my surgeon before surgery Monday. He said my arm will be immobilized in some kind of T sling for TWO months. On the third month, I can go for PT. Will be off work for one month. Second month lite duty, after that unsure about lite duty or not at work.
Said after one week I might think about the trainer.
Surgery June 30 and my Nevada tour is September 23. Two months in a sling,how will be arm be after maybe one month out of the sling?
Think I have a good base and the trainer will keep my legs in fair shape, boring as that is. Two months in a sling will my arm be worth a darn.? Will my arm be too weak on a 427 mile tour.? One month arm will be out of sling.
Seems I have run into others who recovered faster than 3 months. Yes, I have to do what he says; Nevada tour had been the vacation highligth of 2003.
Well today it is sort of hot. The trainer adjacent to the AC might not have been so awful. Said to train on an more upright bike.
Well, this weekend I will sneak out and get my last two outdoor rides, since this will probably not happen again until early September. Thank god it does not snow in Southern California in October.
ps- Probably not hear from me much next week, think I will be high on Percotin.? Said he would not renew prescription so do not loose it.
