Re: Getting to enjoy the benefits of the South African healthcare system

Glad you had a good recovery, KS. Exercise that focuses on flexibility is very useful in these situations. I had a nasty cut to my right arm with a chainsaw, severing most tendons below the palm. Quick operation by good surgeons here in US and subsequent physical therapy and exercise, brought it back to almost 100%. But sometimes I get a numbing pain there when I stress that arm too much. The body is telling you important things and you have to pay attention.
