As Marjorie Pay Hinckley reportedly said;

Every 6 months IS a good indication that the route forward is long......

As regards doing possibly non sensible things after surgery..... I has broken my hip and had a pin and plate inserted, after a year's recovery I was told to "live life normally" so I rebuilt a stone wall with stones which I could barely lift - well over 50kg....

I started to get hip pain and when xrayed they found that I had bent the pin..... it had to come out which was a problem as the screws were bent and would not turn.....

But it came out and I went back to normal life, still aware that I favour that hip for no reason, but skiing, cycling etc all happen....
At least it proved you were lifting with the right set of muscles, just the wrong kind of weight

Noo! I wonder what the medics said behind the scenes after stitching him up again.

We watch the 999 programmes where people are picked up by ambulance and carted in to A&E. I comment at the start of every one of them "how many silly old sods will be brought in this time after falling off ladders?!"
