Should I give up my dream?

Aron Anderson is an adventurer, lecturer and bone cancer survivor.

When I was preparing for the Paralympic Games in London my right hip started bothering my and becoming more and more painful. After a few months I was in so much pain that I could barely sleep at night. Then I finally decided to have it looked at.

The x-ray showed that my hip was worn out and had been dislocated. No kidding why I was in so much pain!

The solution to this was to have hip replacement surgery. After having that surgery I pretty quickly realized that my movement had been very restricted and that I couldn’t lean forward anymore. I couldn’t get into the exact position that I was sitting in my racing wheelchair. 

This was devastating to me.

What was I now supposed to do? Should I give up my big dream in life?
