What's your current status-you must be about 9 weeks out? I go see Meyers Tuesday, and assuming he reccommends surgery, I'll have to decide when to have it. Even if I let go of soccer and running for awhile, I'm a contractor and need to at least be able to walk around the house we're building ASAP after surgery. I'm hoping that if the surgery is on a Wenesday, I would be able to at least visit the site and spend some time supervising by the following Monday, but it sounds likie it might be a good month before I could climb a ladder and a couple before I could lift anything. I now realize that my job requires me to be an "athlete" even if I gave up athletics for fun, so I might as well figure out how to keep having fun too.
I'm doing well right now. I was on the road all last week but still managed 5 runs (3 in San Francisco and 2 in San Antonio). Yesterday I swam 4,000 yards with a Masters team. The problem I had with my right side (the non operative side) seems to be going away. Meyers said this was probably just some compensation issue that will resolve as I get back into training and get stronger. I still get some aching after workouts, but it's very low grade and seems to be less of an issue as each week passes. What I still have a little problem with is serious ab work, like leg raises. Although I am able to do more and more of that each week as well. I have no trouble lifting heavy things.
If you have the surgery on a Wednesday you should have no trouble supervising a work site on Monday. I had the surgery on a Friday and was back at work on Monday, although I was very tired for the first few days back. It actually feels better to be walking around 4 or 5 days after surgery than sitting all the time.
