I am healing well and tomorrow I will have been on this cane for two weeks. The second set of x-rays at 9 weeks post op, showed positive and the bone is bonding to the implant. I am walking easily (tomorrow off the cane) and I am now using an indoor cycling trainer to start elevating my heart rate again. PT recommends no running until January 2021. I intend to follow these recommendations and expect to run the Marine Corps Marathon October of 2021. My expectation is to build some measure of cardiovascular fitness on the bike and begin running about 20 miles/week in January. Any experience or input is very much appreciated. Thank you very much.
