I'm hoping so BL, but I don't know if I'll be able to drive as soon as they take the boot off ... then they're talking about knee investigations when the foot is better - but they've done that once and couldn't find anything wrong.

I'd go for getting a fork underneath it and loosening it all up then hand weeding it out. Not usually difficult that way. Just keep an eye open for bits you've missed making a bid for glory. A hand fork and a big of weeding will keep on top of them.

Try making a little notch in the bark an inch above that potential lateral and taking a sliver of bark out. There may be U-tube videos online showing how. 

Im on my phone or I'd try to find one for you. Sorry.
