Feeling great after my knee op!

 Total Knee Replacement

I had my right knee replaced 10 weeks ago and I’m feeling great!

Before the operation my lifestyle was so restrictive. I was in so much pain. I could just about struggle into work and back, but very little else.  Even the pain killers stopped working. Looking back, it was actually pretty grim. The turning point for me was when a friend asked me to go to the Diana Exhibition at Kensington Palace and I knew I just wouldn’t be able to get around it.  I realised then, that my osteoarthritis was preventing me from doing the things that I love. That’s when I decided that I had to have the op.

The care I received from Mr Asopa was fantastic and I would have no hesitation about recommending him to anyone who needs a knee replacement. I now have a fully functioning new knee. I also have a perfectly straightened leg and incredibly neat scar. He was so conscientious and caring, every step of the way. He even phoned me at home a few times post-op to see how I was doing.

All the information he gave me about the operation was really detailed & informative which was great. He was also very honest, which I really appreciated. I’ve followed all his advice and have put a huge amount of effort into my rehab, which has really paid off. But you get out of it, what you put in.

I’m so happy now and so pleased with the outcome, I really wish I’d had the operation years ago!  I’m feeling almost back to normal. I’m walking again and doing 20 mins on the exercise bike and beginning to get my life back. My ambition is to be fit enough to walk across the Giant’s Causeway and that’s no longer just a dream!

Thank you, Mr Asopa!
