“Anything you do is going to hurt, but you won’t hurt anything by doing it,” the doctor informed me at my appointment yesterday. “If you wanted to run the Boston Marathon tomorrow, I would be ok with that. It would hurt, but you could do it.”
In other words, I’m cleared for just about everything, save bench pressing 200 lbs.
I went over a lot of things with the doctor yesterday and I’m still processing much of it. They have to monitor my blood for a couple of weeks to make sure everything goes back to normal, but so far so good.
I am so incredibly thankful that this has been a relatively smooth recovery!
