Going to see the doctor next week and it should be confirmed that I won't need any more surgery for a few more years.
Then I've just got to wait for my body to recover from the surgery and for my breathing to return to normal after the swelling has gone down. And then I can gradually start training again.
As mentioned earlier, I have been doing what I can to keep as fit as I can. But that's never been a problem for as I enjoy running so much - even when I'm ill I go for a run when I'm able although the distance and speed are not important. So ... 10 to 20 minutes a day. If that's all I can do then I'll do that.
I know it's only a temporary hiatus.
Even chemotherapy didn't stop me, although back then it was a case of 'I don't feel ill so why should I behave as though I'm ill ?'
This autumn has been different though - laboured breathing has made me realise my current limitations.
More news after I've seen the doc next week.
