Met Mr Boyd, the orthopaedic surgeon, at Loughborough General Hospital this morning. He has, praise be, put me on the list for a knee replacement.

No promises of when it will be done. Since we're coming up to winter, there will be an increased demand for beds and non urgent surgery, such as replacements, will be put back.
