Just like to say that my consultant Mr Mellor who did my operation five months ago on my knee, I can't believe how well and quickly I recovered. I am out of pain which is a relief and to be able to work without pain is amazing. I would just like to thank him and all the lovely staff that looked after me through all of these, they were all amazing.
