Six Million Dollar,er, Knee

At last, I have a new knee. OK, it's actually the old one with some scraggly bits of cartilage removed but still, I should be back for GRACC (and calling risky quick singles to short leg) by the start of the 2007 season.
If you do require such an operation (keyhole ~45mins) I can heartily recommend the Blackheath BMI Hospital (helps if you have BUPA, or deep pockets...). They were fantastic from start to finish, consultant and anaesthetist were brilliant, after-care was superb. Pity they had to shave some of my knee:

Update: I've had the dressings off, looks even odder with the nice blue stitches:

I can hear you laughing, you know.

  1. Ooof! Well done sir. Congratulations on the new knee.

    Is there a "Shaved knees" pool on Flickr? If not, well, hop to it.
