"It's good to get my life back"

About: Raigmore Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had a half knee replacement in January 2014. Following several year of much pain, the operation went well. Recovery good. However, I experienced some stomach problems afterwards, but these soon got better. The recovery was rapid during the first 3 weeks, but slowed thereafter. Now 1 year after the replacement, I am glad that operation took place and I would gauge my recovery now at 90%.

It is good to get my life back. I now need my other knee replacing, and hope that the operation goes equally as well. Thank you
