"Thank you"

About: Harrogate District Hospital

After a karate injury I was left in pain and unable to walk for some months due to a nasty cartilage tear. I finally managed to badger a courageous registrar into injecting both knees with steroid as a last ditch h attempt to avoid surgery. I actually managed to run some of the way back to the office a mile away. A week later I resumed karate training and found I coukd run up and down the room again at pretty much full speed. Brilliant job. Thanks for listening to me snd factoring in what my needs and priorities were even though you advised me of the risk involved. I'm very grateful.
