My daughter has low blood pressure and even though they were aware of this prior to surgery there was a bit of a panic when she was coming round from her second surgery because it dropped so low - believe me you and your ...

Congratulations on getting through so far and especially for your optimistic and positive outlook. I agree with everything you say about the importance of being positive and also about having people to support you - this is VERY important as it is so easy to get down after this surgery - it is long ...

For what it's worth, my advice to you is to read and be informed about every possible outcome - negative and positive. It is a fact of life that not everyone on this board has had good outcomes to surgery - whatever that surgery has involved and whatever the reason for their dissatisfaction. The one...

It sounds like your surgey definitely did not go according to plan. My advice is to establish from the original team if the outcome you have was what was intended. Put everything in writing to the surgeon - ask what were the planned movements and if these were achieved. Ask for your pre surgery x.ra...

Thankyou all so much for your kind words - at times we wondered if we would get to this point and be able to look forward with optimism - I'm truly delighted to report that when things go wrong, or when there are unanticipated outcomes (as sometimes happens) if you take action and are determined the...
