    4 months off only for the bike? How does doc decide that, heart rate, or just prudence? When stand up from sitting, the heart is lifting a lot more than 6 pounds.

    Surgeon insisted I walk the day after colon surgery. A week later, I could ride the bike. It enhanced recovery, same as it usually does for muscular aches and pains.

    must be something to do with the sawing my entire breast plate apart, stopping the lungs and heart for an hour, cutting it in half, and sewing in a Bosch Jetronic butterfly valve. Will find out when I see the surgeon soon. Just consulted a 30 year old guy who is a runner who had the surgery and he was not running for about 4 months.

    That would hurt a lot. Whew!

    4 months for the breast plate, internal organs, sure. At least. Broken collar bones, cracked ribs, are a piece of cake next to that. Good luck in recovery.

    Hear tell Bosch is good stuff! How do you replace the batteries?

    Well, I'm back again just to say I have an inguinal hernia that can be pushed back in. At the moment its just fat in the inguinal canal but they said if it gets really sore that I should go directly to hospital with the suspicion that it could be a strangulation of my bowels as that can be life threatening.

    The turn around for getting it repaired in Australia under the public healthcare system is about 3 to 4 months. I'll soon see when I get a referral in the mail to see a surgeon. Otherwise I can go private and pay whats most likely a few thousand out of my own pocket.
