Strength of a surgical repair

Recommended Posts

Hey Dr Mark, quick question. Had an abdominal aorta replaced and my vascular surgeon is heart set against riding my YZ 250. Is there any concern that the surgical line between the original equipment and spare parts may be weak? I have been told by the same surgeon that he has no issue with me returning to scuba, but is definately not pro bike at all. I tend to believe he is concerned beacuse he will not be able to make a repair if I re-injure the area. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated with an eye towards some of the possible hazards and underlying reasoning he might be employing. I'm nearly 2 years post surgery and have reached MMI according to all of my doctors. Thanks in advance.

Bob
