Seemed best way to check, even if engine was together it's not much work on Ruston of this type to take out inlet chest and look.
Fed up at the moment as I wasn't supposed to be doing much as I've just had a prostate op' (28/06/18) which didn't go as well as could have, got a catheter at the moment which is coming out Monday and having another attempt at normalization.
Started to bleed again this morning but cleared up now so have to do as they say so not much progress will be made yet.

Hopefully you are on antibiotics. My dad recently had some similar work done and after coming home started going down hill really fast. He was rushed to hospital and had sepsis. Because he is the type to leave it to the last moment they reckon he only just avoided organ damage or worse!

Had it done in the Spire hospital under Bupa insurance, only medication I was given was pain killers and paracetamol.

Antibiotics along with liquid paracetamol would have been pumped in all the time you had a drip in, certainly while in surgery.
Anyway best of luck with getting over it, and good on you for taking it at least semi easy
I'm the same, I have managed to not lift too much since a hernia repair beginning on June, supposed to lift nothing for 3 or 4 months, but we all know how that's going to work out, got two weeks more rest before a 3 day 2 engine rally
