Just two days following my operation, I was walking around on crutches and was able to return home following five days in hospital to start on her physiotherapy programme. Other patients in the hospital could not believe how quickly I became mobile and I trust that my active lifestyle before the operation played a key part in my rehabilitation process.
Once I was back at home I saw my physio and personal trainer every day, and each day I would see progression in my range of movement. Three weeks later I was back in the driving seat, and going on country walks again.
Mr Davies believed I had exceeded expectations following such a serious operation and I found that my recovery process was a lot easier than I had anticipated. 10 months on and I now walk up to five days a week on hilly terrain, I have no problems whilst swimming, I go to the gym twice a week and have even rode a camel on a recent holiday! I could not recommend the treatment more, but I do want to highlight the importance of maintaining fitness in the months before and after the operation in order to see the best results.
