"My wife had a total hip replacement ..."

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

(as a relative),

Anything else?

My wife had a total hip replacement on Saturday 28th of March 2009. It has been a total success, painless and problem free. We are extremely grateful for the care and attention she has received from QEQM and the speed with which the NHS delivered this operation.

We would also like to thank the Surgeon for the excellent work he performed in conducting this operation and the advice that was given subsequently. To put things in context (16 weeks after the op): we are both in our late 70s and we have just completed a trail run of 18 miles on our tandem, which my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed (with no problem from the hip). Before the operation we were wondering if we would have to give up our cycling.

So thank you everyone
