Sorry to hear of your condition, but I'm glad that at least you are not in pain! I've had very little opportunity to fish this past couple years with my son just going on two and daughter going on six. I have found reading fishing memoirs from the 30s through the 50s are a good way to enjoy the river, if not directly. I prefer the books from that time frame because of the way they are written, they seem more subtle in their bravado, which I appreciate.
