Everything worked out fine after a couple of months of rest and exercise, being a non smoker and a sporting person helps, and young. Crazy hospital there in Dubrovnik and its seen some shit go down with the war there and it was shelled for a while to but I think than makes it a good trauma hospital. The girl had a torn liver damaged kidney and a collapsed lung, the old sister in charge gave her a rubber glove with a plastic tube taped in the end and told her to just keep trying to blow it up, that was there million dollar lung repair machine, it worked. After a few weeks we spent our days walking, about 20m the first day, after the first week it was 200 metres but that would take 3 or 4 rest stops to sit in the sun and an hour or more. Stunning coast along there and I plan to go back and ride there on an old 1969 R60/5 I have stashed over in Europe. Thanks for the well wishes.
Cheers Locky.
