"Spinal operation"

About: Orthopaedics & Spine Specialist Hospital Site

I was admitted here on 22nd of March 2016 for an operation to remove part of the bone that was trapping the leg nerves and giving me extreeme pain. On that morning i had an operation in which the surgeon removed a prolapsed disc and other obstructions. After coming round in my room, i felt the relief of not having that pain straight away. There were the normal 'after operation pains' but the extreeme pain in my lower back and legs had vanished. When i left the hospital, later that night, i could almost sprint out, where as before the operation, i could hardly hobble around with a stick. I would certainly reccomend this hospital and all of its team to anyone that has anything spinal that causes them to need treatment. I feel like a new man now. Thank you to the whole team that looked after me while i was on my short visit, you were Fantastic.
