Re: Arthroscopy or not?
Just for the benefit of anyone considering this. I did it and was in for 39 minutes which is apparently quite long so he must have done a fair bit. I'm back running (if you can call 3 miles running) The main problem is the 10 pounds I've put on! It still is a bit uncomfortable. I realise now that my OP was a stupid question because no two ops will be the same.
The best bit of advice I got by PM was to get back at it as soon as possible- so true. If I'd struggled on with physio hoping it would slowly get better for a year or so I don't think I would have started again. At 53 with just 5 month off it is pretty tough as it is and i look back at stuff like the Three Shires and Langdale a year ago and can't even imagine being that fit again. (you can see the difference in muscle size and I never stopped being active) At the time I thought I was an unfit bloater! I'm taking it slowly with the target of matching my average time for Nine Standards on New Years Day.
