"Hope after all for new knee"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

I had a very helpful and informative meeting with Advanced Senior Practitioner regarding an increasingly painful, long-term knee complaint. I had been very disappointed to be informed by Ramsbottom Health Centre, after X-Ray, that I wouldn't be eligible for help. However, I was offered an appointment with the Practitioner who was very sympathetic to my situation and showed me how the knee had degenerated since earlier X-Rays taken eight years ago. Consequently I am now awaiting an appointment with a Specialist in the hope of getting rid of the pain and not fearing that I'd need two sticks to get about before long. Thanks.
