The Way Back
Jon operated on Danny around 10 weeks ago. After six weeks, Danny saw Jon again to check everything was proceeding as it should.
“Six weeks is quite a big milestone as it’s the point at which you should be getting back to most day-to-day activities,” he explains. “After that I’ll see Jon again at the six month stage. And because Jon knows I’m under the physios with the club he’s happy to leave me in their hands to keep building me up.
“It’s off-season now so we’re building up to getting back to training and I’ve been maintaining my fitness at the local gym. I haven’t run yet but I should be starting that in about three weeks. Then, as you get stronger in one area it’s just about drip feeding the additional elements – straight line running, then changes of direction, then contact.
“I’m hoping to be back around March time. That’s just after the season starts so I’ll miss all the pre-season friendlies and the first part of the season, but it’s a long season and I don’t want to set myself back by rushing anything.”
