Surgery and motorcycle riding

I went thru Bladder Cancer surgery TURBT three weeks ago. Anyone else have that surgery know how long I have to wait before I can ride again? Now I can see if I was riding my last bike, A Ninja I might have to wait longer to return to riding than I would with my present bike a 900 Vulcan with a cushy comfortable seat. This thread might lead to others who have had other types of surgery and how long it took them to get back to riding, you never know
I should mention the trips I am thinking about taking are one to the VA Hospital for my self the other to another hospital to see the wife who broke her ankle. Both trips would be about 3 hours round trip. one on one day the second trip the next day. Not been a good month for the family so far I guess you could say.

I just had a knee replacement last month, I'm hoping for a return to the saddle by spring. Couldn't ride at all last summer.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting

Update: 3 weeks after the surgery took a ride to see the wife in her hosptal, a three hour round trip. All went fine, no bad after effects.

Yet another update:
Looks like I am at the end of my riding motorcycles Have to go for 2 or 4 chemo treatments then their going to take out my bladder and prostate. But that would of normally only slowed me down for a couple months. But at 2:30am this morning sadly my wife died. Besides loosing a partner of 51 years now my income will be cut in 1/2 yet again. ( happened a couple years back when we both retired.)
So won't beable to afford the bike payments. So in the very short future you'll see my bike in the forsale section. Darn I knew I shouldnt of paid out that money to have had the valves checked, and they were in spec anyways urrrghh

Horrible news reggae5, so sorry to hear of your loss.

Gone are the days we stop to decide where we should go, we just ride.

Damn, man, I'm sorry. That's just all kinds of sh!tty.

Gripping the throttle, his knuckles went white with desire; the wheels of his Vulcan exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45...
