Jenny shares her experience of having private knee surgery

Finding the best course of treatment

'It was extremely easy to get an appointment to see the knee consultant, within a week or two. He referred me instantly to have x-rays and that was all very rapid. By the time I had the x-ray and had gone back up to see him he had it on the screen and we were able to discuss the way forward. He explained to me where the wear and tear was and a partial knee replacement would be the way forward.'

Going into hospital for the procedure

'My experience in the hospital itself was totally enjoyable. I had a very pleasant room with a sea view and every creature comfort including a TV, music and my own bathroom. My overall feeling of the hospital was that it was more akin to a very nice hotel. I was presented with a very nice menu that could have been in a high class restaurant.'

Getting back home

'I was told initially I would be in there somewhere between five and six days and in fact after three days I was told I could go home. The physio starts almost immediately and they encourage you to get active. Weight bearing didnt feel like a problem, there was no pain, which was good.'
