Sitting in his chair at ABC studios, headphones on and voice once again permeating the airwaves, Eoin Cameron is "home" again.
In his first stint on radio since doctors removed a haematoma after a fall in the garden of his apartment complex in April, it was like the 61-year-old never left.
The only difference is that this time - slightly camouflaged by his grey hair - a big scar sits across the left side of his head.
"I feel really good," he said. "I wasn't supposed to come back so early, the doctors initially said it would be a few months . . . (particularly) after I had a mini-stroke after the operation.
"But I feel good.
"The only difference is that I'm just not walking the psycho-spaniel (his dog) as far as I used to anymore," he said with a chuckle.
The top-ating host fell about 2m backwards over a parapet wall on to his head and was briefly knocked unconscious.
In the days afterwards he had headaches and blurred vision. The headaches became more severe and he later lost vision and consciousness and was admitted to hospital for the operation.
He said despite a few little stuff-ups, being back in the studio for the coveted breakfast slot was just like riding a bike.
"I came in super-early just to get ready, but everything's been fine - it's just really good to be back," he said.
Mr Cameron said the public response after his operation was overwhelming.
"There were thousands of well-wishers," he said. "The guys (in the studio) printed them out for me.
"But I think many people were shocked just because it happened so quickly."To ease the workload, Mr Cameron has been advised to go home straight after his shift finishes at 7.45am.
