I am currently in classes at work, and they run through the first week of December, so surgery won't be until after that.
Today things got a little better. Last week I managed to spin on the trainer. It took a while until I was able to bend my knee enough to pedal, but I am there now. So, today I through flat pedals on my road bike and went for a ride. It wasn't much, and it was pretty slow, but I was outside and it felt awesome to pedal around. The hardest thing was trying to not do too much. Hopefully I can progress to clipless pedals again, but if not so be it. At least I can get outside.
