experience, your mileage may vary. I am sure there are still some 80 year

My only advice is to do it as soon as you can even if you have to stretch a bit, FWIW, my 2 cents worth.

Great advice for sure

Dabnis (and anyone else over 60), how's your diet? If typical and "so so", ever consider going the Jack Lalane route of focused and targeted healthy juicing and healthy eating + regimented daily exercise? Might help out in the healing/reflex department... might even take a decade or more off your "true" age (the age your body is due to it's "use", not your calendar age).. just getting off meat can do wonders in and of itself..
