You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

Thanks again for your advice chaps.

I was very lucky that the NHS funded my treatment in a private hospital. The main reason for them agreeing to do the operation, was the impact it was having on my riding.

I got an excercise bike in week 1, and I've built up to 8km each day now. I do 2x 4km, of 8 minutes each. I also do the excercises they suggested 4 times each day. My movement is better now than its been in a long time.

The NHS provide one hour long group session in a few weeks time, but that's all.

I don't need the sticks anymore, albeit I still have a noticeable limp. Hopefully that will go in time.

I have sat on the bike, and don't get any of the pain that used to appear after 5 minutes in the saddle. I'm hoping to be riding pain free before too long.
