    Just a note to say how very nice it was to meet you this week, being your first patient the day before yesterday for my DOUBLE hernia op.

    I want to thank you for your empathy, sense of humour and professionalism in looking after me, which has been greatly appreciated. I could not have asked for anybody better, and am most grateful to you.

    Even though I am nearly 79 years of age and should know better, I was very frightened and extremely nervous, but you were quite correct, I did not feel a thing and even better, was very happy for the rest of the day.

    Yesterday (the next morning) I felt a little pain which was expected, but today I am moving around and have even been on my two wheel micro scooter to Sainsbury’s! and I will soon be back at the Club playing my knock-up tennis, gym and swimming twice a week.

    Thank you again, I will always remember you, you are a great team.

    With kind regards

    My heartfelt thanks to the excellent staff. In particular, my surgeon, my anaesthetist and the nurse with the soft Irish accent (I am sorry I don’t know her name at all) were all utterly superb.

    So far I have no immediate plans to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, but it feels entirely plausible to me that I will be able to take up hiking again in Cornwall quite soon!

      No plans to climb Kilamanjaro? Why not? As you see from our front page ‘slideshow’, after this hernia repair nothing needs stop you! Enjoy life to the full!

    I had my repair in September and felt great from the moment I left the operating table.

    I am so glad I had it done at The British Hernia Centre.

    I was back on my bike within a few days and back in work within a week. Everything was back to normal, so quickly. I would recommend The British Hernia Centre to everyone.

    I am kicking myself for dithering so long before going to The British Hernia Centre!

      If you end up needing an orthopaedic surgeon, its not our field of specialisation so stop the kicking.
