About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

I had my 1st total knee replacement in june 2015

They found that i had a broken knee also when they operated my surgeon told me next day and all was fine & fixed to which it was i could walk again after been housebound &wheelchair bound for a very long time then there i was next day after my operation along with physios walking the ward i nearly cried with joy

Then this year january2016 i was asked to go in again to have my other knee replaced too as it needed a total knee replacement again overjoyed as by this time day after operation i was walking pain free and no bones on knees grinding together i walked on two crutches freely and after only two days was allowed home
