Thanks, I guess I was being overly optimistic that I wouldn't need that much time off.
I think I will also have the horizontal incision. I have two tendons that are completely avulsed-4 cm receded & also a waterskiing injury. I am looking forward to getting back to running, biking, triathlon...but I know that will be awhile. It's nice to see that people are talking about getting back on the bike.
