Anyone here ever have major surgery? I'm sure a few of you have. I've had major abdominal surgery recently to remove scar tissue that had strangled my intestine. This was around March 10. I'm doing a lot better and will be going for my postop appointment this week. The surgeon told me at the hospital that I surgeon told me I'll be fine and make a full recovery.I almost feel like I never had surgery! I've had surgery before so I know how it is. But of course, I want to know how long it can be until I get back on my bike. I'll ask the doctor of course, but we all know how it is- a lot of doctors don't know much about sports and they probably assume everyone will go home and be a couch potato. Needless to say I don't think I'll be able to ride for a little while yet, and when I do I know I will have to start SLOW. WHich is okay since this is the early season around here. I've lost weight and have to get my strength back. So, anyone have similar experiences? Hearing it from other cyclists is just as relevant as doctor's advice!
