    quick update.

    had surgery on my wrists yesterday. Flew to Liverpool in the morning, had the surgery at 2:00, discharged myself at 9:30, stayed in a hotel with the mrs last night, flew home today.

    back home, with bad news + worse news...

    Bad news:
    Werent able to fix my wrists, as the op required was too big.

    worse news:
    Have to go in for 2 more ops, one for each hand. Have ruptured a ligament in each hand, so full surgery required, including possible ligament grafts from my forearms, and a full immobilty cast for 4-6 weeks each, and 3 months of physio afterwards for each wrist... Surgeon has refused to do them both at the same time.

    Hands are heavily bandaged now, and stiff + sore, but nothing compared to whats coming. Hope to be back at work on monday, at least partially, as I'll be off for a lot soon. Have to see the surgeon again next Sunday to arrange when the ops will be.

    Hope things start looking up...

    You know where I am if you need a rant mate.

    Also I think smurfy just implied that you're larger than average.

    :( Bad luck mate - that sounds very nasty. Both what is wrong AND how they plan to fix it.

    It was good meeting up with you on Tuesday, even for a short time - so fingers crossed that you're fit and healthy the next time I run into you :)

    Smart ass answer to any situation is.."Even this shall pass." Hang in there sarge. I started martial arts after breaking both arms in an accident. Still training fifty years later.

    regards koyo

    With all the orthopedic troubles you have you should donate your skeleton to science. No one would even think to disbelieve in the bionic man after seeing it. :D
