Dr. "Zap" will sit at a console at the side of an operating room. Across the room, a da Vinci robot will carry out his instructions via five small incisions.
Good riddance to my prostate, a ticking time bomb. (I'll miss it, though.)
Next day I'll leave the hospital, feeling pretty weak.
Walking Back to Fitness
Over time I'll build up my walking range to the level when I walked into the hospital. It will be a few weeks before I can ride my bicycle.
Until I get bored with it, I'm wearing a FitBit Charge HR activity monitor. I'm setting no daily fitness goals: my body will let me know how far I can walk on any particular day.
The graph at the top of this post refreshes each day. Check back in a few days to see how I'm doing.
Note: here's how the graph is kept up to date:
1. My FitBit automatically synchronizes with my phone or tablet via Bluetooth.I haven't found a simpler way to do this.
2. My phone or tablet automatically synchronize the data with fitbit.com.
3. A "recipe" at IFTTT.com reads new data at fitbit.com and appends it to a Google Sheets spreadsheet.
4. The graph draws data from the spreadsheet every time you open this post.
July 23, 2016 I replaced the automatically updated graph with a static image. "# daily steps" has served its purpose as a metric for recovery.
