I really just wanted to say, yet again, a huge “thank you” – well, for everything. For operating when the NHS kept pushing me back, for being straight with me, for being an utterly brilliant surgeon and an all round good egg.
Being out of pain and on far fewer drugs has transformed my life. You must do this for people time and time again, and I hope everyone tells you how amazing it is.
Another thing to mention, although I know you are already aware, is what a positive experience this was this time. The spinal block and sedation left me feeling pretty good immediately after surgery, and to be able to have an operation in the evening and be out of bed the next morning is astonishing.
Please also pass my thanks to anyone else you encounter who was part of this positive experience.
Very best wishes.
