A fantastic success story
I know I thanked you at the time and again when I finished my physio with Gill; but i am now writing to let you know, 2 years on, how successful the operation to the cruciate ligament in 2014 on my right knee has been.
I know age was not on my side for the procedure but with initial physio from gill, the encouragement from Roger and my determination to recover I am absolutely delighted to report that I am now fitter than i think i have ever been. We had a brilliant winter skiing. I am now able to run 5 km under 35 minutes, have been enjoying lots of strenuous walks in the Alps and back playing tennis.
I would certainly recommend anyone to have the hamstring taken from the other leg as I had a harder time recovering from that than the cruciate operation and the hamstring still tightens up.
Many thanks again for you help and advice. A fantastic success story for all concerned.
There certainly was life left in the old dog!!!
