"Rehabilitation after leg amputation"

About: Colman Hospital

(as a relative),

After leg amputation my husband was referred to the Colman rehabilitation hospital, Pine Cottage unit Norwich. He was assessed as suitable for prosthesis, returned to the unit as an inpatient for physiotherapy and to be measured and cast for his prosthesis. He returned to the unit for a further four nights as an inpatient to get used to his new leg

I omitted to say just how wonderful the service was and continues to be: I am convinced my husband would have made significantly slower progress without his experience of the whole team at Pine Cottage. I will add a new 'story' from his follow up at Ipswich earlier today. Thank you
