Colour co-ordinated! I thought this plaster went well with my outfit. Only trouble is, I shall have to wear the outfit for the next 5 weeks!! Anyway, good news. To cut a long story short I have opted for intensive physio rather than surgery. Apparently I'm a borderline case, with no guarantee that surgery would improve the outcome. A no brainer really, and after I said I wouldn't have surgery, the surgeon said "I wouldn't either!!" Now I can begin to think about Christmas!
