"Thank you for looking after me"

About: St James's University Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I have had a few operations mostly hip replacements which have all been successful. Having worked until 65 and many years after, I am still getting about with my stick. It is also getting a bit old so I’m going to have it repainted. My right leg joint is coming out but have always managed to push it back. I have always been well looked after in hospital and am glad to get in to have an operation and get back to moving again. All the surgeons, doctors and nurses I have seen have been marvellous and keeping me going. I shall always be grateful to these people and the kindness shown to get me going on the move again for the last lap of my life. All I can say is keep up the good work, you are all marvellous. Thank you for looking after me, yours truly.
