I definitely wasn't going to get an artificial valve, they make too much noise & i'm not very good with warfarin ! So i had a choice of Bovine or Pig, and because of my persuasion Bovine was my only option

26 years of concreteing and building im shocked i pull up as well as i do sometimes , coupled with two big offs , one roadie and one offroad both of which still give me grieve . At 45 i can definitely feel my age more , not as strong thats for sure , getting a bit stiff these days . I still run circles around the young fellas though , so cant be too bad .I also think I'm riding at my best , but for sure the bike plays a big part in that .

If you get cranky (ie old age) can you just blame it on mad cow disease?

Old joke in there about piano playing Tom....

"Doc will I be able to play the piano after this Op?"

"Sure Son, can't see why not"

.........

and remember you actually cannot do whatever you want Tom, despite what you Doctor says we still have rules. anti-clockwise was the rule you grew up with I believe

Getting some of my old energy back, maybe the bodies just been busy fighting something off.

Know what the blokes feeling it in their 30's are talking about, went through that, had to clean up my lifestyle and get more active to come good.

Another couple of years before I succumb to getting a hoist.
