Same boat, 38, I had also taken about 15 years off. (worst mistake ever)
My body is certainly not the same though I am in pretty decent physical condition arguably better than my early 20's. This is mostly due to the fact that I eat well, exercise as much as possible (P90, gym, biking) and try to stretch.
I have also been taking glucosamine/chondrointin as my knees and shoulders ache. It may or may not help let you know in about a year!
I had some injuries in may late teens/early 20's that contribute "less than desirable performance" as an adult such as a broken tibia and a torn quadricept on the same leg. Today that foot is a whole size smaller than the left and the leg is weaker overall.
Recently suffered a cracked bursa on the knee (same leg) it healed quite well, a little discomfort under strain but no pain while skating.
Left shoulder injury, prob slightly torn rotator. Went away with conservative therapy.
The biggest PIA is the torn quad which is unrepairable at this time. It really hampers my skating and endurance.
