The New Zealand international has had an operation on his stomach earlier this month and he is still some way off playing.
"It's not ideal timing but unfortunately that's one of those things you can't do anything about," said Paston.
"I feel that I'm on the way back. Before, I was hanging around wondering what the problem was but at least this is a positive step.
"I'm keeping my fingers crossed because until I'm back training properly it's hard to say.
"It's still a little bit sore after the operation but I'd like to think this has fixed it.
"I've noticed a big improvement already from last week. I don't get tired when I walk."
