Dear Mr Breakwell I wanted to wrote to say a really big thank you for all that you have done for me. You helped me through a really tricky time when my back was painful You saw me quickly and always gave me good advice about the best treatment at the time You have a very calm and reassuring manner and I felt I was in good hands throughout, something that is very important when you are at your most vulnerable, in pain and scared of what the future may bring I am now one year on from surgery and am really pleased with the results. I am completely pain free and only have odd times when I ache or feel alittloe uncomfortable I go to Pilates class every week to try and improve this and to protect my back in the future I now live a perfectly normal life. I have an active social life, I ski with Sharks Ski Club most saturdays and have recently been on a very successful skiing holiday with my family, something that at one point I didn't feel I would be able to do again For all this I am very grateful, and send you my thanks

Mr Lee Breakwell

Thanks for the comments and update. It's great to hear you have made such a good recovery from your surgery for sciatica. I know how painful it was for you before, and I am delighted you are back skiing with the kids!

Mr Lee Breakwell

I am really pleased that you are happy with the results of your scoliosis surgery. It is a major procedure, and such a life changing condition, and so it's fantastic that you feel so much better!
