  • Well done Matt. The first inkling I had a serious problem, although I had been having breathless moments for a while, was when I was swimming one day, never been so glad to reach the side! Can't imagine even attempting it now. I have seen your posts since I joined this forum and you're an inspiration. Andy

  • Hi Andy thank you very much.Matt

  • Three cheers for Matt Hipp Hipp Hurray x 3 (well for dozy read lazy as well) To think 3 weeks ago there was not a joint in your body that you wouldn't have gladly cut out. And now, how fantastic you are. Oh do you have a lung condition as well, how did the sats hold up or have you given up playing that game. I would give any thing for a swim - next years goal. Well Mr Miracle man 2 (only cos I met Tony first) I am so proud of you. Love Dozy x

  • Hi DD Thank you very much and how are you just now.Matt

  • Oh well done Matt, I,m really impressed, you were in so much pain earlier in the year, this must be a huge boost for you & as you know, swimming is so gentle on the poor old joints, I hope you continue to fight on & go from strength to strength with the swimming

  • Hi Matt did you enjoy it? and are you going again?

  • Hi Hopetorun, I have 4 sessions left i might give away my last 2 to someone who needs it more than me, I can go to my local sports center.Matt

  • Oh I'm so glad you enjoyed the hydropool and hope you find it beneficial. My arth physio arranged a course for me last year. Land physio is good but isn't the hydropool fantastic? It improved the movement in my back and neck, which was very limited. I hope you find it just as helpful. How on earth did you manage to swim in that heat - my physio wouldn't allow me to swim.

    Lots of healing hugs to help ease the pain.

    love cx
