Get up to date, Steve! This is the NEW Robocop!;

Mind you, he looks more like K.I.T.T. from 'Knight Rider' when he is in 'combat' mode;

I hope that the small controller doesn't use Windows. Can you imagine what would happen if it 'blue screens' and tries to do a system dump!

Oh, I don't know. Ask Gary Oldmans' character, who looks like he pissed him off!;

I'm home from the hospital. Getting jiggled about in Kerri's Astra SRI with its big alloys on Aberdeenshires farm tracks that pass for roads was not good. Knocked the stuffing out of me. Next week she can take the c5. Not allowed to shower or bath until I get second op. Hold your noses lol. Then 6 weeks of doing nothing that involves lifting, stretching, or twisting. My heater won't be fixed for a while then, or wheels changed, or bedroom decorated. It will be worth it though after 2&1/2 years of being just better than useless.

Welcome back. Slight error in planning your home trip there (apparently French doctors joke that if hydro pneumatic Citroens could be prescribed they would prescribe them for patients with back problems). You can get HAZMAT suits for a low cost;

By the way, you are not useless, merely at a lower state of readiness than optimal!

One of those suits would really be needed. I have a huge dressing on lower back and the box of tricks strapped round my waist so can't get on jeans or trousers. Can't wear my onesie every day and night for 6 weeks:oops::evil::D:lol:

I don't see why not. I see people in Asda and Tesco who apparently do..

Good luck with your recovery Davie. I hope it all brings a great improvement.

Great stuff on the operation Davie :-D

In your first post I read it that you've been fitted with electrovalves :lol:

I just hope if that is the case their diodes are good. Otherwise you'll be like Marvin the Paranoid Android complaining about the pain in your diodes!

I think that even in Aberdeen they are a little bit more advanced than electro valves! There was a woman from the makers of the device up from Bristol assisting with the op and seeing that it was fitted correctly. Mind you the west country may be as far behind as us lolol

The C5 is showing typical french electrical tendencies. It's not serious though, it's only the radio/cd player. When the car is started it has a mind of its own if it comes on the radio or the cd, which could be where it last was or the beginning of the cd. I wonder if my bionic back is interfering with it! Apart from that car still running as it should.
On to the back then, the electronics are doing their job. What a pleasure to be almost completely pain free after 2&1/2 years. The specialist was happy yesterday and the second operation is scheduled for the next Friday. I still have, and always will have a knackered back, and have to take care of it, but getting rid of the pain is excellent.
