Do to the funding leading to push out the campaign, it was decided to use the time to sort out an ongoing niggly knee issue I have had since a 2005 skiing accident.
When the specialist went in they had to change the plan. The damage was so great on both sides of the joint so he was unable to perform the Osteotomy as planned. So they cleaned up the surfaces and time will tell as to the long term impact. He said in the medium term he will make sure It's good to get through the row and now have a much shorter recovery period of 4-6 weeks on crutches rather than the expected 12 weeks. so can get back into the campaign sooner than later.
