Bryan Cooper: The latest on my injury
When I had my fall at Punchestown yesterday, I felt sore, but I didn’t think it was much more than that when I walked into the ambulance.
I didn’t feel that bad at the time, and I thought it was just a bang on a leg that I had broken before, and on my lower back.
But the doctors at the course were keen to send me for an X-ray – so well done to them – and it was not a nice thing to find out last night that I had actually fractured my pelvis.
My specialist wasn’t around and I am going to see him in person on Friday, but they emailed the X-rays to him, and the initial prognosis is that I will be out for about six to eight weeks.
But I will know more on Friday, and hopefully I will be able to start my rehab straight afterwards.
I should be out of hospital later today.
