Unfortunately, there’ll be no more cycling for Garry in the foreseeable future!
All year Garry had been waiting for a new hip, but in June the pain became too severe, and Garry was taken to the hospital to see what was causing the pain!
After examination, they discovered that there was a couple of abysses on the hip and he also had sepsis!
Garry spent the next five weeks in intensive care while the doctors fought the sepsis and drained the abysses! Read Garry’s account of his time in the hospital here.
Once they’d got the sepsis under control, they decided to remove Garry’s infected hip and give him a temporary spacer in its place!
The downside to having the temporary spacer is that he’s not allowed to ride a bike!
Garry’s hoping to get the spacer removed, and his new hip early next year, although it’ll be another few months before he’s allowed back on the bike.
But rest assured as soon as Garry’s allowed back in the saddle, he’ll be back on the road!
Make a donation and get Garry away as soon as he’s recovered; you’ll be doing everyone a favour!
