It's now 3 months since my aortic dissection. The chest infection cleared up a couple of weeks ago and my sleep patterns are improving - 2-3 hours at a time instead of the one hour I was getting.
I went out on my motorbike today for the first time since the operation. It was terrific! Best medicine ever. 40 mile round trip through fast twisty country lanes. No problems whatsoever.
I was a bit hesitant about doing it at first as I have had the occasional dizzy spell - once when driving the car, but no such problem today.
