    Glad you're all back together, I'd be cautious as the guys have said, what did the quack say?

    Thanks, basically left it up to me but one of the Nurses said 6 weeks which is today but One of my wounds is still pulling and gives me a little bit of pain. I can only sim race with my wheel for a short amount of time as it starts to hurt a bit. I think another couple of weeks and I'll be ready plus in the mean time, I can get my bike serviced for the winter.

    Just caching up with a few things and somehow missed this thread. All the best for a full recovery Jim. Sounds like you are well on the way which is great to hear. :)

    I can't offer much advice above what everyone else has said. Just listen to your body and take things slowly. Let us know how things progress over the coming weeks.

    I went for a follow up on 15 December and they found the secondary lead in my device has become dislodged. Specialist rang me after and advised to have it re-done as even though the main lead is fine, it would be better to have the secondary lead back in place. So sometime in the new year I will have to go back in to hospital and looks like more time out of action. I've also started a low carb eating as my weight is all about carbs carbs and more carbs. So far so good with 3.5 kg off in 2 weeks. I'm still ok to cycle in the meantime.

    Yeah a good low carb diet will do wonders to your weight. And of course cycling a low heart rate does as well.

    I hope you will have a very healthy 2017 Jim!

    I thought I better update this as it's been a while :)
    I had my procedure back in January (For the second time) and the follow up in February and this time all ok.I've been doing my regular commute to work for about 4-6 weeks now (Really must get the Strava going again) I also had a appointment with my heart nurse on Thursday and he was going through my test results from Jan and he advised that because of levels of this that and the other from my blood tests I could and should be cycling even more! as my heart is stable so this was good news and he even pointed out a route that he uses which is about 25 km so I'll be giving that a go :):)

    Hi Jim,
    Glad to hear you are OK. And "cycling even more" it is something everyone want to hear when recovering after a difficult medical procedure. It means everything it is OK :grinning:
