Now HERE’S some absolutely wonderful news coming straight at you from the weird, weird world of the AFL.
“I’ve had a complete response from the treatment so far. We had another PET scan two weeks ago and they’re going to have to be every three months [from now on].”“I was lucky enough to get the results yesterday. Trained in the morning, and had the doctor’s appointment late afternoon yesterday.”“Grant and the team at Peter Mac gave me the news that I’ve had a complete response from the treatment so far. He’s given me the all clear to get back into living normal life and getting back to doing things I want, which is playing footy and living my life.”
Roughead was reluctant to put a timeframe on any potential return to AFL football – he hasn’t played a game since the 2015 AFL Grand Final due to an off-season PCL injury in early 2016, which he rehabbed while concurrently undergoing cancer treatment – and for quite obvious reasons the club is likely to be cautious.
Today is a great day.
Rough has some positive news to share with you all.
