But you don’t know what to expect, you don’t know how long before you have pain. And I’ve seen this before. On other guys, and it took a while. Some guys, a couple of years ago were able to come back and really beat it. So hopefully that won’t be the case for Stephen. Like I said, it’s completely different for every bowler.”
