    Hi @Edgar. I'm afraid as we're not medical experts we wouldn't be able to advise about this, but you're very welcome here on the community. :smile:

    Hi @Edgar and welcome to the community. Recovery can be tough but immensely worth it. If you've not had it already, then it's definitely worth speaking to your GP about being referred to a physiotherapist :) I wish you well in your recovery!
