A quick comment:
Most people seem to think that total athletic ability is totally dependent on your legs. That is not true, your lower back, core and upper body are critical in explosiveness etc etc. Of course legs are of utmost importance. Plus your leg ability loss does not necessarily have to be a loss in every way. it could be that you loss explosiveness in your legs but maintain long distance endurance of speed or visa versa...does not have to be a loss in every way in hyour legs area.....get my drift !

I don't believe that athletic ability in the lower body is permanently lost. Few, if any, studies demonstrate that to be true.

Just make sure that you are aware of how long it takes to recover and how much work you have to put into it before testing your theory.

I'm aware I'll have to work hard to regain or maintain my muscle mass, strength, etc., but the point it I don't think the athletic ability loss is permanent. It isn't necessarily my theory; I just haven't seen any evidence that athletic ability is permanently lost.

I'd be okay with 50% loss of athletic ability, I can just get it back, I've done so before, although not to that degree, I had about 10-15% loss.

As an amateur Bodybuilder/Powerlifter, I agree to lose 5-10% if it means I'm 7 cm taller.
Why? Because you get much more respect and women's attention from being tall, than from being powerful/big.
Losing more than 10% of your athletic ability feels to me like something that happens due to complications in your surgery, not something that should normally happen.
