"Had 2 fractures not just somesort of swelling"

About: Tewkesbury Hospital

I hurt what I thought was my knee in Belgium playing football, When I got home a few days later decided to get it checked out, was told I had just bruised my knee or something. Spent the next week trying to walk on my leg, Went to Cheltenham hospital and found I had two fractures of the top of the tibia and have had to have an operation to put metal plates in to hold it.
