That’s exactly the point I want to get back to as well: leading the same kind of lifestyle as before, and not just enough healing that I can simply walk. Walking isn’t enough; I want to run and jump and skydive and hike, and do all the other stuff that still gives my mother a near heart attack 🙂

I’m not a medical professional, but my gut has always been to treat things aggressively rather than conservatively.

But again, that’s just my opinion and I know plenty of doctors would tell me I’m wrong.
