A few weeks ago Dave Inman, our Sports Injury Specialist, was training for a 3,000 mile bike ride across America to raise money for BLESMA (formerly British Limbless Ex Servicemens' Association.) During training he became unwell and the result was that he was sent to see a specialist and was told that he needed a major operation immediately.

Dave has subsequently had the operation and is recovering well. From walking 20 metres down the hospital corridor two days after the op, with myself in tow, he is now home and walking 3½ miles a day. All this within a week of returning home! 

Dave had a follow up appointment with the surgeon who gave him the good news that he has made a remarkable recovery, and does not need any further treatment.

Unfortunately he will not be attending the BKF’s on the 23rd May, but I am sure you will all join me in wishing Dave all the best and we look forward to seeing him at the BKF International Open in September.
