    I’m amazed at how life changing this op has been. I feel young again! After just a week I was cycling again. After 4 weeks I’m fine with 60-70 mile rides at my normal fast pace. Amazing!

    I did not forget it was a year today that I had the TRIPLE hernia procedure and was going to send my heartfelt thanks once again. It was a nice touch to receive the follow-up questionnaire.

    May I once again pass on my gratitude to my surgeon who carried out the triple repair but also on one had to make good a three time failed previous repair! [performed elsewhere]

    I am now teaching PE again and as a former elite level road racing cyclist am enjoying training again bent double with no issues!!

    Thank you to everyone who made my experience so positive at a time when I was really struggling. As always I recommend the BHC at every opportunity.

      We love to hear from our previous patients – to tell us how well they got on after their repair here. Yours was more complex than most, being three hernias one of which having been repaired elsewhere and failed three times! We were delighted to do for you exactly as we described and we hope to hear from you again next year with more good news!

    I am so pleased I had my operation performed at the British Hernia Centre, every aspect of the experience was first class! I had no pain with minimum discomfort. I was up and about hours after my operation.

    I am happy and relieved that this procedure is concluded, and thrilled that the result appears to have been so successful.

    I was surprised at the lack of post-operative pain I experienced (compared with a previous hernia procedure) and I returned to normal activities sooner than I anticipated after the operation.

    I have nothing but respect and admiration for the surgeon and his team, who showed great professionalism and kindness towards me at every stage. Thank you!

      This, coming from a consultant specialist in another field of medicine is praise indeed. We are all quite touched. Thank you.

    At 45 years old this is only the second operation I’ve ever had.

    The anaesthetist and surgeon put me completely at ease to the point where the surgeon said “nearly done“ to which I replied that I thought he was still prepping!

    The care and professionalism from start to end by all was exceptional. Thank you.

    Today just two weeks after the operation I have walked 20,000 steps two days in a row, swam 900m front crawl and have been using the cross trainer/swimming 200 to 300 m every other day for the last week.

    I also just booked my first triathlon of the season and a ski holiday in March.
