FPM10 Patient Story 2

During our 10th anniversary in 2017 we collected some patient stories that demonstrate both the experience of living with chronic pain and the many benefits of chronic pain services

Patient Story 2

"One year on I am forced to reflect on the life I had pre intervention by you guys and post or as I and lots around me call it……. My miracle.

For many years and crucially the two previous to the operation I endured pain that ran my life. The hardest part…..not being able to walk along the road holding my 8yr old's hand.

When I met with ‘Barney’ and his team this was my only goal. I didn’t expect that following the operation I would be running, playing football (occasionally) lifting the cases on holiday instead of my wife having to do it. And most importantly holding my sons hand to the point that he would rather I didn’t.

In short, you changed my life …..the care, compassion, expertise and support you have provided has been second to none.

In short, you changed my life …..the care, compassion, expertise and support you have provided has been second to none. In fact I will never forget that call to tell me you had pulled out all the stops to get me under the knife for the full implant sooner than planned.

The only thing is you ruined Christmas because nobody can give me the gift that you lot did.

Thank you doesn’t cut it but THANK YOU ALL for everything you have and continue to do for me."
