Just an update if you are interested.
Surgery was last week, went really well, I was out of hospital in 4 days, up and walking 5 hours after, apparently as I dont recall much of the first two days.
So far so good on the recovery point, still a little pain however I think thats related to the surgery rather than the injury itself.
Few weeks to go before I am back to work so lots of time doing research on gear etc.
Im out for a short walk each day which helps to loosen up a little.
Back on the trail very soon I hope.
