Kinnear Looking To Quick Recovery After Successful Operation


We haven’t heard much about Joe Kinnear’s triple bypass surgery, which took place on Friday, but good news today that the operation went well.

Joe Kinnear – operation went well

The Sunday Sun is reporting today that Joe is looking to resume his managerial career at Newcastle, after his operation is said to have gone to plan.

Apparently the operation proved straightforward, and Kinnear expects to make a quick and full recovery. But with Joe we hope it’s not too quick, because he’ll want to return just as soon as he can, and it will be hard to keep the man away from the Newcastle training pitch, once he can move around again in a few weeks.

Once Joe is back on his feet, he will feel a lot better, now that the blood will be pumping through his body and not restricted by the clogged artery.

A Newcastle insider told the Sunday Sun:

“Joe underwent his operation yesterday and the surgery went to plan,” “He’s feeling fine and looking forward to making a quick recovery.”

“Joe will remain in hospital for another seven to 10 days and will then continue his rehabilitation at home.”

It is probably considered too early to say whether Kinnear will resume his duties at Newcastle this season, but we think Joe will want to be back in charge of the side before the end of the season.

The major problems after an operation of this kind, is to ensure there’s no infection, which is why Joe will have been in intensive care. A lot of heart bypass surgery these days is being replaced by placing medicated stents into the affected artery.

These stents are small metal cylinders, with medication to stop any scarring. and therefore any blocking of the artery in the future.

They are inserted generally through the groin under local anaesthetic, and the procedure takes a few hours, and the patient is awake during it all, and recuperates in just a couple of days.

I know this because I had two stents put into one of my heart arteries in late 2003, after it was found to be 95% blocked, and felt just great a day later. I had the classic symptom of pains in my left arm while exercising.

But try telling your co-workers you feel fine a day or two later – they expect you to drop dead at any minute.

We assume it wasn’t possible to do this for Joe, otherwise he would have been back to work very quickly, within a week or so.

Joe will soon be feeling a lot better, and it’s good news this was caught early, and he didn’t have another heart attack. Now he will need to watch his health and exercise well, and maybe even lose a little weight, which would certainly help, and he’d look a lot better for it too.

But Joe should be just fine, which is the best news of all.

Comments welcome.

    Good news.. But still think we need a new and better manager….Joe has done well, no doubt about that… but in terms of tactics he is just not good enough. Would like to se a up an coming manager.. maybe martinez or laudrup, 2 managers who likes to play offensive/attractive football, which all toon fans want.

    Glad the op went well. Just hope Joe takes some time to reflect on whether he really needs the stress of one of the hardest jobs in football.

    Steffen, with all due respect, Joe Kinnear is a good and tactically astute manager. He has forgotten more about football than you will ever know.

    Joe really should be out for the rest of the season, this two months then back to work business is just for uneventful desk jobs. For football management it should be much longer, and for manager of Newcastle, longer still!

    Oba, so was Vincente Del Bosque, and he won the Champions league twice. He was also the manager of the excellent Spainish team which crucified England the other night. There are more examples too. Your argument is specious

    Oba, you’re sidestepping the point. You implied that Kinnear was a bad manager because he hadn’t held a manager position in four years, which was wrong. So now you’re trying to change it into an arguments about the relative merits of Kinnear and Del Bosque.

    And Oba, I don’t care if I am in the minority, as my instinct to just go with the herd is very weak.

    Oba. mate you are getting carried away. Even though I agree with you entirely about Keegan and share your views about the nonsense spoken About this tribunal mullarky. – I think Marty, Stardust and the other’ young intellectuals’ are seeking damage limitation for when Ashley settles up and gags KK about the shafting he received. Thy have spouted so much tripe about this for months that they’d find KK’s vindication, even just in terms of compo, hard too swallow.
    But Worky is right, man. Gan and put the kettle on.
