    I'm healed, now what the heck should I do?

    So my five months of sitting in the corner for medical time-out is up. I am officially cleared to go break my body again. Unfortunately it looks like they are calling for rain/snow mix this weekend even in Moab. Taking suggestion as to how I should go about undoing all my good behavior and medical progress of the past months

    Check out my new bio-mechanical implement -- the blue fade is custom baby.

    Congrats on the doctors "okay" to go nuts! Not sure what you should ride, but I have a bigger and heavier brace for you to wear. That looks like a weight weenie brace... racer boy. lol

    Braces are for teeth! (or at least that's my ortho's opinion). I never used one post op and (knock on wood) haven't had any issues.

    I'm glad to see you're back in the saddle--you'll have to come down for some park action, or maybe even Pueblo sometime. I'm not sure if you want to try skiing yet (I waited ~9 months) but skiing was the BEST post op healing thing I did. It broke up a lot of the left over scar tissue and helped get me back that last bit of flexion I was misssing.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I will be on the snowboard this Thursday (I even snuck out for a few runs about a month and a half ago but don't tell my doc). Looking forward to riding the mtb again. What is the south (CS, Pueblo) looking like for this weekend?

    Clearly we should discuss AZSF over a beer sometime. And Pueblo on Sunday might be in the works.

    Pueblo sounds good as does Hall if either are dry enough to justify the drive -- nOOb do you have Hall recon? I have AZSF on the calendar and am working to make it happen.

    The more out of shape you are, the steeper the hill looks.

    Mine didn't think it was a necessity, but I wanted it for snow sports during this first year back. It is also is adjustable to give the lateral side of the joint spacing where I am missing some cartilage and may help delay further trouble. If not anything else it sure looks serious.

    Yeah...very serious.

    lack of meniscus is a whole another issue(no clue what a brace would do for you).....my comment relates only to a new ACL....

    AZSF.....hmmmm.

    Glad to hear you're all healed up Jason! I wish I could get away for the AZSF. I think you need some of that Sedona healing. In the meantime, you can come up north, and we can conquer some single track and burritos.

    Unloader brace? Looks like a new and improved version of mine. It got me through a ski season pretty well:

    It's gotta feel like coming out into the fresh air for you. Congrats.

    Yup, the brace is adjustable to place pressure on the inside of the knee (medial) to unload the lateral side. I am pretty excited about getting out but the time actually went quickly. I just have my fingers crossed for a successful season.

    Is there any room on the Pueblo trails for one of us slower types with all you spinner, "I want to go fasterest up the hills" types? I feel like spending some quality time with Hooters... the trail that is.

    I'm healed, now what the heck should I do?
    Not get unhealed would be a good start.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Those warm winds dried us up a bit. Backbone was dry this morning, and I suspect Bobcat is almost dry(I'll verify friday).

    check.
    there's a ladder down there to which i need to give the finger...
    but then again, if nickle is going, his relentless taunting re: my lovely white bicycle might be enough to keep me home [SIZE="1"]crying in the corner of the basement[/SIZE].

    ...though maybe 'zilla will show up and kick his skinny arse for those mean spirited words in the other thread.
