National leg-spinner Odean Brown says now that he has undergone a surgery on his injured left knee, his next course of action is to make a speedy return to action.

He made the disclosure yesterday a day after leaving the University of the West Indies Hospital where he underwent the operation.

"I am quite happy and relieved to know that the surgery has taken place, and everything seems to be okay," said Brown.

"It has been quite a while that I have been carrying the injury, and should have done the operation.

"But they say 'nothing happens before its time and now that it is over, the aim will be rehabilitation, and trying to get better as soon as possible."

The operation, which was spearheaded by West Indies medical panel head, Dr Akshai Mansingh, according to Brown, involved the removal of particles and tissues from his knee.

He said the surgery, which featured a key-hole operation, lasted a few hours, and since then he has been able to move around with assistance.

Brown, who has been one of Jamaica's best bowlers in recent years, also expressed disappointment at having to miss out on this month's regional Super50 tournament.

"I am disappointed to miss out on the Super50, but see it as a blessing at the same time," said the 31-year-old.

"If I have been playing all these years with the injury and have been performing well, I can only imagine how much better I could do if I was 100 per cent fit."
