Well, operation has been completed and I'm home ... and so far so good, fingers crossed
The consultant is pleased with how the op went and apart from the day following the op, which wasn't very nice at all, I'm feeling well and positive. I couldn't have asked for a better consultant and the hospital staff were brilliant - so if any of you from SE UK need a recommendation as to where to have this done, give me a shout .
I'm trying not to get my hopes of this op being a success up too much as i know i may come across setbacks and must not overdo it .. however, i'm delighted so far.
thank you all again for all you're support and hope you are all ok xxx
