Hi guys,

I regularly visit this site and have kept up with everyones progress but i dont post very often.

I have my Op with Paul Levick in October and in some wierd way i am really looking forward to it.


The one thing that is bothering me is this: What do i tell people? I obviously dont want to tell them the truth but i cant think of a believable reason why i am laid up for a while. Any suggesstions?

Do you do any sports that people know about?

I do, and my plan is to take a week off work holiday for the op. and if I'm not ready to go back to work I'll call up and say I've broke my ribs and will be off for another week then gotta take it easy for a bit.

Might work for you ?

Top suggestion Jackd, rugby knocks, tennis/rowing sprains to back etc fit the MO perfectly.

Because you are self conscious of the subject you are imagining the worst.  Most of my mates/family didn't bat an eye, the hardest thing was explaining why I wasn't drinking for a couple of months!

Illness is the perfect excuse, you could reasonably we out of action for weeks with any manner of ailments, although the most credible would be arm, back, shoulder, rib conditions. Be creative ;)

I stayed off the booze for a few days before and then two weeks afterwards. I told work and friends that i had a benign growth removed.

Just tell them youve torn a muscle in your back and have limited mobility. In the very slight chance anyone notices your vest thatll cover that too. Broken rib would work too though I would imagine it would attract more attention and presumably you just want people to ignore it.

I used the crack ribs line at work.....following playing on a motorcross bike.  I have a desk job, though being 'big' i always get asked to carry things for the girls.  Buys me time out of the early healing period.
