"Looking forward to playing badminton again"

About: City Hospital campus / General surgery

(as the patient),

Having had this lipoma behind the right knee for about 12 years with it increasing in size, it was decided to have it examined with a view to have it removed. X-rays and an MRI scan revealed that it was non-malignant and within a two month period I was given a date for an operation. I entered Nottingham City Hospital on Gillies Ward at 7.30 am on the day of my appointment and by 10.30am I was on the side- ward without the lipoma. I was discharged on the following Saturday having been well looked after by surgeons, doctors and all nursing staff. I am now looking forward to playing badminton again although this growth has not inhibited my activities in the past.
