Week 17 update - 4 day golf trip

Here is an update for the golfers out there:

Exactly 120 days from surgery I made the trek down to Bandon Dunes on a guys golf vacation. There aren’t any motorized carts allowed, which I knew, but wasn’t going to miss this trip.

Things went well. We played four days of golf, a round each day carrying clubs, the par three course after one of the rounds and the “punch bowl” after one as well. LOTS of walking - my tracker had me averaging about 11 miles a day (not just golf but all day)

Didn’t really need to ice or elevate and ibuprofen helped.

I’m a little sore since I’ve gotten home, but it was well worth it. 60 degrees, sunny and minimal wind…i would have been upset to miss that!

  1. Good stuff, must have felt good all over! :-)
    I was 17 weeks in when my Whistler ski week came up, and I had a blast, no problems except shopping for thinner socks for the slightly bigger left ankle. (Details on my blog.)

  2. This sounds great! I’m 6 days post op and hoping to take a trip to Greece with lots of walking by week 17. Also hoping to return to golf as soon as possible. Sounds like I have a good chance based on your experience.
