thank you my dear friend. Yes!... the postoperative period is something terribly painful, I had never experienced so much pain... but as the days went by, puff, it eased.
It's been 4 months now and there is still some inflammation, but now everything is totally manageable.
The first month, the second and much of the third, I didn't want to go to the bathroom!! hahaha, it was terribly painful... hahaha... anyway, thank God, the worst part is already behind us!

Hi MauricimoB, (and other bike riders)
Thanks for sharing your stories...
Much appreciated. Cool
All I can add, Is my story,
Rode bikes for 50+yrs. Love it. Still do...
Hit a big roadblock when my hands siezed up, and got way too painfull to ride.
(think of very rusty ViceGrip worn out pliers..)
So,
I got an upright e-bike. Hands don't hurt anymore.
But my legs? They are in a way different geometry now.
(no more standing on the pedals, humping the front wheels over bumps, uphill in first gear... )
I am getting used to it.
New leg muscles at 65 will take time.
The nice thing?
I still ride.
And, I still ride,
Take care,
Have fun,
My friends,
Dave

Well, the progress is notorious and so on Sunday 03/19/2023 I went to my town where I was born.
It is located about 35 km from my city.
There are dirt roads to reach it, but the drought (it doesn't rain) for about 7 to 8 months and therefore the dirt roads are pure dust, which makes it really impossible to ride a bicycle, the bicycle advances using the appropriate gears , but the flying volvo becomes highly uncomfortable to breathe, so I decided to go by road. that is to say a national route. There is more risk due to the traffic of cars and trucks, but, as it was done in 1996, a good mirror to check and pay attention to the sounds of the tires turning of the vehicles, one can calmly spot them from more than 100 meters away (I'm talking about those who come from behind), so I get off the road, go for a stretch along the shoulder and then return to the road.
It has been a beautiful trip on Sunday morning, I toured the town.
Here I leave some votes from the tour of the route.
There is a service station in the middle of the route totally abandoned, so I took some photos of it.
This service station reminds me of some US horror or mystery movies, where things happened to visitors, haha...it would be a good setting for Steven Spielberg Director perhaps!
The abandoned service station transmits many things, it's a strange feeling, being there and thinking that all that once had life.

A rusty roof and a rusty truck tank, everything has remained there over time...time to go!

Mauricio, buenos días esta hermosa mañana. Maurico, good day this beautiful morning. (Well, buenos días is used for "good morning", but it means good days, sin embargo, no importa. Laughing )

Esas fotos son muy bueno, a similares de oeste Texas y este de Nuevo México, especialmente las fotos de las gasolineras que están abandonado. Tenemos las mismas en nuestra tierra. Thumbs Up

Hi MauricimoB,
Thanks for the rides you share. Cool
Snow is melting and rain will wash the winter salt away here.
Spring is almost springing here.
Is this your Fall ?
Do you ever get snow?
That old, flat lands, have been paved over decades ago here.
Got Lake Ontario to fly from.
Paved industrial places are fun to fly from, if the security guards like beer !
Any calm wind,
Should have a Cox engine warming up...
Take care,
Have fun,
Dave

Thanks guys for the comments.
It is very nice to be able to share here with you.
Dave, I answer your questions:
We are entering autumn here, a beautiful season, the weather generally in that season of the year is very good.
Snow, sometimes unexpectedly as something very rare in the area where I live, occurred in 1971 and in 2007... but in other areas of my country like Bariloche, snow does fall there.
Flying in abandoned places is nice, I think that in the station that I visit, there is no control or security personnel, there are only the facilities, if I go flying, of course, I will make sure that I am doing things correctly so as not to be surprised!
Some photos from my club in 2007, this is not normal, the snow here in my sona is not normal, but it happened!
