Back off the road again :0(

Postby Tommy RE » Mon Jul 16, 2018 2:35 pm

Underwent the operation on my spine last Tuesday (yes, they did actually find one). Pon awakening can only say that the results were truly remarkable. I was able to waggle the toes of my left foot, something that i have been unable to do for nearly 2 years, a lot of the unresponsive muscles in my left leg started firing up on command and various associated pains in my back and shoulders disappeared. :)

I can only say that the neuro surgeon at the QE did a fantastic job. However, I still have the lack of sensation in the left foot and calf as before but to a slightly lesser degree. The neuro surgeon says that it may or may not return over time. still got a load of staples running up my back like a zipper that will be removed later this week and am only in mild discomfort and stiffness from the operation which will pass once the healing process gets underway. :)

Now for the bad bit ...... Not allowed to lift anything, no gardening housework prolonged periods of standing for 4 weeks, that rules out model engineering in the man cave :headbang: . No periods of sitting longer than 30 mins for 2 weeks. No driving for up to six weeks (SIX WEEKS!! :shock: ). No riding motorcycles for 3 - 5 months :shock: :shock: :headbang: :headbang: I'm bored stiff already. So this seasons riding is kicked into touch just when we have the best weather for years roll:

However, I am up on my own two feet, alive and kicking so that's a bonus. See you out and about next year folks.

I was positive that the op would be good for you.

The time will pass faster than you think.

Best wishes

No prolonged standing, that rules out the washing up then. Boring I know but do as the doctors say.

That's no excuse. People sitting in wheelchairs manage to do the washing up. ;)
