Well, Its been over a year since I started down the road to get my legs sorted. Two operations later, and I am feeling pretty good. I seem to be able to walk pretty well, managing significantly more than the 10 minutes walk to the shops that I could barely do before. I still get a little bit of pain if I either over stretch myself, or, if I have been particularly lazy, and get out of practice.
Its still a lot better though. I can comfortably manage a good 3-4 km walk in one go, exploring some places I had never previously seen before. My standard working from home day involves about 30-50 minute walk on a lunch time.
Feeling pretty good, losing a bit of weight, and generally feeling like a new man. However, it now feels like I have swapped bad legs for a bad back 🙁
