I feel your pain Bill. I never would have imagined how my little medical issue would affect concentration, yet it still is.

Hope you can get sorted soon. I know how frustrating forced absence from the workshop can be.

Thanks for the support guys  :nrocks:

I'm doing fine.  I've built up my walking until limited by my knees . I can do about 2 miles before my right knee says STOP,  sitting on a bike I can do much more.

My pectoral muscles have taken a bashing so I can't ride my ebike for a while , but at least I should be driving again soon .

Six weeks are up on Monday, so I can finally take off the support stockings and get back to my normal fish-nets and suspender belt  :)

It does tend to conjure up images from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" doesn't it.  Gonna be hard to un-see that, even if it is only imaginary.

I can make it worse...

I didn't tell you about the whole body shave prior to the operation...  (Or indeed, the nightmare of the regrowth!)

Nope, body shaving doesn't scare me.  Unless it's a female who chooses to have a shaved head, that just seems wrong.  (Sexist of me I know, but some guys with shaved heads are pretty scary too.)

Well, I got the all-clear from Dr Colin today   :)

On the chest x-ray It looked like they used bailer twine to bind my sternum ! Anyway it seems to have done the job. 

I just have to work my way back to fitness.
