I was fortunate to have an opportunity presented to me last week. As many of you know, I have been existing with a bad hip for some time. Over the last year it became worse a lot faster than I expected. I was scheduled to have surgery in early 2022, before Covid, and when the pandemic hit, it looked like I was going to wait a long time. I began to seriously pursue alternative treatments a couple of months ago. My surgeon was contacted, and confirmed a number of weeks later that delays were likely and that they had no alternative therapies.
Within the space of 3 days of getting that answer, I get a phone call offering me an opportunity to have my hip done in LESS than a week!!!
I went in yesterday morning and came home in time for dinner with a new hip.
Today I walked 1.4 km with Karen. I’m sore as hell but feeling great at the same time!
My main reason for posting this is give a HUGE shout out and thank you to the staff at Southlake Regional Hospital in Newmarket. From the moment I walked in the door at 6 am to when the staff wheeled me out to the car, the management was flawless. Above all, the staff was friendly and cheerful throughout the whole process. You guys could not have made the experience any better!
Of course, the biggest thanks to Doctor Walmsley, for choosing me as a candidate when he was offered an opportunity by the hospital to do what he does best. He and his staff were great from the first phone call to the last conversation I had with him. Thanks, Doc!!
