Steelies as physical therapy???

I go under the knife Wednesday (23rd) for prostate cancer. I'm thinkin' a little northern Indiana steelie action would be real pt
I actually concidered putting this off until March so I would be likelier to be able to engage in productive pt
My wife went ballistic at the idea of posponement so I guess thats out
Do you supose I could get my Doc to scrip a little light steelie action? Or maybe a little bonefish flatts somewhere balmy

Best of luck with the surgery. My dad went through it last year and it wasn't too big a deal (as much as cancer can be).

I'm sure the Dr can help you out. They say at least half of any medical battle is mental, so I'm sure it would be a good idea.

i went under the knife on oct 24, and am leaving for the amazon on jan. 25. i have been active in my regular fitness program since 4 weeks after surgery and 2 weeks prior to completing pt. i am 60...... go for it. any reluctance is in your mind and not in your ass.

mnb & scott

MNB, couldn't agree with you more. Wife (Lee) and I are planning to hike,canoe, and fly fish Glacier National Park (and hopefully Bob Marshall Wilderness) this summer. Last summer (for our thirtieth anniversary) we revisited our honeymoon site on Crab Lake in the BWCA. Maybe not all the worlds best places are accessed only by canoe, but a lot of them are
Scott, I have always enjoyed your signature line, fortunately the fish don't always win
Thanks guys.

Getting into areas accessible only by canoe or kayak, or sometimes float plane, is one of the best fishing experiences someone can have. I've been to a few places like that in my life and I have photographs of them stored away in my head that I can bring up like it was yesterday.

I'm glad you enjoy the signature, I've honestly wondered a few times whether it really makes sense to anybody but me!
