Message to fans from Jayco Opals star Lauren Jackson

Australian Jayco Opals star Lauren Jackson is out of hospital and recovering well following surgery earlier this week. Today she released the following message of thanks for her supportive fans.

Hi there all,

Just thought I would update you and thank everyone for your kind messages and support.

I have a wonderful support group through family and friends plus my twitter community.

My rehab program on my knee has been progressing well, I’ve worked long and hard but I have just run out of time to be able to play for the Opals in the upcoming Worlds and get through a full program of matches. I’m so disappointed that I will not be joining my Opals buddies in Turkey for the championships.

I have also had a hip problem which has been getting progressively worse and after scans confirming the problem I elected to have surgery now rather than later.

I’m out of hospital and home resting up…..will be on crutches yet again!

As soon as I can, I will be back at the AIS on rehab and really looking forward to being on court again and playing for the Caps this coming season as soon as possible.

Thanks again for all of your support…. can’t get through this stuff without you.

Take care

Lauren
