So here is my latest mode of transportation for the next little while. I had a complete left knee replacement on March 26th. I saw the surgeon last October after waiting 9 months for the appointment and he put me on the waiting list and I got the call early March. The wait is usually much,much longer here but our provincial government decided to dump some money last fall into hip and knee surgeries to help shorten the wait time closer to the national average and I and I was lucky to have benefited by getting in a lot sooner than expected. The normal wait here was closer to 2-3 years.
So I am 12 days post op already and although this isn't going to be a "cake walk" I am improving every day. The Doc has banned me from driving anything for 6 weeks so I imagine I will be looking forward to be able to just drive my truck by then. I have no idea how long before I can get out for a run on a motorcycle but I will cross that bridge as soon as possible. I have been dealing with this injury and the growing limitations it has imposed upon me for over 42 years now and am looking forward to the increased mobility this procedure will bring me. Between spending a month on the road last summer touring around NFLD and dealing with the bum leg I probably didn't put more than 3000 kms on the Strom, DR and TW last season. I have some serious catching up to do!!
