Anyway, for anyone who has had a similar type surgery, how long before you were riding again? The nimrod at my pre-op said a week (I assume she's one of those people who thinks I'm riding carnival ponies and doesn't understand I have a volatile 5 year old who can slam me into the ground at 90 miles an hour). My surgery papers said to avoid heavy lifting and sports for 2-3 weeks. But my mom (who is a bit of a wimp sometimes) said it was 4-6 weeks before she was feeling like she could do any sort of exercise.
I am DREADING the idea of not riding for that long. I probably wouldn't be riding Jynx initially anyway, I'd stick to Dove who is like, bombproof safe, but just the jarring motion concerns me (as well as obviously falling off).
Thanks for any opinions!
