March 30, 2015 – I am a former mountain bike racer and was racing at a very high level at one time. I still keep in top cycling shape and after 7 weeks, I am already at full strength on the bike and just 2 weeks ago, it seemed like an impossibility I would be this strong. Dr. Marchand laid out a timeline for my recovery and it was pretty much perfect with what he gave me for expectations. When quoting this site, it would be called a “Superman Recovery”. Granted, I went into the surgery in very good shape and I am relatively young (38).
