Light at the end of the tunnel for Nige!

20/02/2015. You may already know that Nige has been off games for some months now struggling with a problem with his right arm, meaning he is unable to drum at all, and was referred to a specialist by his GP. That appointment was yesterday and he’s now had some results from that, and the prognosis is good.

He needs an operation in his neck to replace a disc, which has been causing problems with the nerves in his arm. Apparently it’s a 2-3 hour operation but he will be expected to make a full recovery, after some recuperation and physio to rebuild the muscles in his arm.

So now he must wait for an appointment for the operation, which may not be for 2 months unless he gets a cancellation. We have all been very touched by all the messages of support for Nige over the last few months, thank you all. At last there’s light at the end of the tunnel! We’d also like to thank all the guys who have stood in to keep the band on the road in Nige’s enforced absence!
