Problems with Aldag's appendix

T-Mobile's Rolf Aldag had his appendix removed in emergency surgery on January 1, and went home again January 5. But it turned out that this was too soon - he had to check back in on Friday. "Complications arose which necessitate another operation," said his wife Eva, who gave birth to the couple's first child on December 27. Aldag had been scheduled to ride the Six Day races in Bremen (January 14) and Berlin (January 26), but his participation is now questionable.
