Neighbours' Rhys Lawson has tough times ahead on UK screens later this month as he fears that his career could be over. The surgical intern, played by Ben Barber, injures his hand while rescuing the teens after their upcoming car crash - which throws his entire future into jeopardy. Rhys initially has no idea that the damage to his hand is so serious, but when Karl Kennedy brings his tests forward, he soon hears some shocking news - he only has a 5% chance of a full recovery. At first Rhys is keen to fight this, but the reality of the situation soon hits home as he knows that the odds aren't good for him to continue as a surgeon.

When Vanessa and Susan both encourage Rhys not to give up, he tries to be optimistic and ploughs ahead with his rehab. Will he be able to get the results that he wants? »
