Great show of motivation to start walking Mark! I'm impressed. Keep up the good work and speedy recovery.
Have you tried accupuncture? I use it after every operation to relieve aches and pains. It works for me but YMMV.
When Lance Armstrong was recovering he attempted many bicycle rides. I remember reading that it involved many stop and rest breaks. Strength build from action so keep it up.

Hello AirK, Guys,
I'm willing to try pretty much anything to help improve my situation.

I did a 5Km walk last Monday on a steep hill-side. The rout has 170 steep steps. I felt good, bit tired, but paid for it for most of this week as I put the internal re-section wound under too much pressure. I've since been in some pain most of the week, gradually decreasing thank the gods. I suspect the Doc won't be too pleased with me at tomorrows check-up.

Very frustrating, I hate sitting around, but somehow I've got to figure out better pace and timing while introducing a new fitness program. Rests are clearly important and knowing when to stop and how much to exercise (something I'm hopeless at doing) is critical. At this moment, I'm operating Markaudio around 80% of my typical daily capacity. The Doc's already told my to ease back but resting watching boring daytime TV isn't my idea of "life"!

urrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh...............

Cheers
Mark

"Steep?" You're just like the rest of us after all! Doing it our way! Don't!

Mark, I guess a gentle stroll around the Victoria Peak will do, don't go too far with the exercise. Take care.

Mark,

How are you doing ?
Now resting at home, or already back to full strength.


Wishing you speedy recovery,
Patrick

Hello Patrick,
Good to hear from you. I'm doing pretty OK. Now doing faster(ish) walking around 6Km and 500 metre swims most days. Need it as I've got to replace allot of lost muscle mass and stamina. My surgeon would like me to "gently" re-start my mountain biking soon (Saikung Country Park). Still short of energy but its coming back. Doctors recon I need 6 months to full recovery. I aim to do it inside 4 to 5 months! Can't hang around, tonnes of work to do at the workshop bench.

Do you, or any of your HK family/friends who know a good oncologist in Hong Kong? I'm trying to find the right person, not a pill prescribing doctor, keen on earning his/her cut from the drug makers.

Cheers
Mark.

Hi Mark,

Good to hear your recovery rests are driving you nuts, its a good sign, I'm sure you'll heed your body's warnings! But staying sane is hard when you aren't a couch potato. Whats the mountain biking like round Saikung? If you ever come back to the Marches I'd love to show you round the trails in the Forest of Dean

Hi Simon,
Good to hear from you. The biking in Saikung is Ok. Some challenging off road stuff (do that in 2 or 3 months time). On road is good. But I sure would love to with you in trails in the Dean!

Cheers
Mark.

Need to ask around. Will take some time.
