Thanks. I guess I wasn't perfectly clear. The component we're looking at is the cut finger, that waited too long to have the tendon repaired. The recontructive surgeon told me I could make it flexible, and then keep it flexible by manipulating it with the other hand. Would either, or both forms of diclofenoc be indicated in that process? Would warm water be indicated? Warm Vaseline? Or simply continue what I've been doing--very, very, VERY slowly increasing the flexibility by manually moving it. I went in looking for an appointment with, or reference to a therapist, but that wasn't possible at this time.

Tough call. As I told you before, in USA they would have repaired the bone and tendon at the same time. Not sure why a 2-step process in your case. Agree a hand therapist might be helpful if you can get plugged in.

I'm not aware that anyone on this thread lives there.

Honestly, I don't know how well I would have held up to three more months recovery time. I'm an old man. I'll be fine. I'll change my life as it needs changing. Thankfully it was neither the thumb nor the right hand.

I think WhiFi sunsets should be getting to be later than 9 just about now.

Late sunsets in Portland were pretty cool. Watching the Beavers AAA ballgames, gametime at 7 and they wouldn't turn on the lights til the 7th inning stretch.

Per Google he edges me by eight minutes. Bummer. Still on the podium, though.

I thought about taking my seatpost off and taking it to the bike store, rather than the entire bike. Loosened the clamp but the post seems stuck. Won't move. Guess I won't be doing that.

Mechanicaling is hard.

Get thee to a bike shop. Stat.

In December we got ~50 minutes on him, though.

Yup, this is the best time of the year for our night group rides. Too bad there's no real group rides this year. Well, I saw a couple group rides over the weekend, and a few guy from my group have been getting together, but nah. I'm fine with continuing to sit out.

My evening commute back up the hill was fueled by a Snickers bar.

I went by there today (without bike) and asked about it. The mechanic said he could mount it. I'm not going to be able to (easily) adjust it though, am I?
