I am sorry I've not been keeping you all updated, but here goes, this is the best and most exciting post I have done. I am mega excited HERE GOES.....ITS WORKED!!!!!!!!
I had this procedure done in November last year, I wrote all about it from operation to recovery so wont repeat , just hoping anyone can still see those posts. I went for my 7 month check on Monday 4th June 2018, I had honestly thought something had started happening my leg feels softer and I have a ankle bone, although I have been keeping my stocking on, it looked like my other leg, I left my stocking off for 6 hours one evening when I went to see a show and wanted to wear my high heel shoes, I was sat down with leg down all evening but when I got home it still looked slim, and didn't feel like it did if I only even left my stocking off for 30 minutes. When I went to Oxford I had my fingers crossed, I had the measurements done with a computer gadget that measures both legs, my measurements before LVA were 7.5% bigger than my other so quiet mild to start, it then went upto 12% 3 months post op, which worried me, but this is normal to go up and down until it realises what it has to do, my check up on Monday measured it to now 4.5%, nearly half to the original , I am expecting it to go down even more, but to be honest my leg looks the same as the other now,
I really thought it hadn't worked but this post is to say be patient and wait, it can take a year to work and know what its got to do, as this is very specialised surgery it needs time to work. I am 7 months now after surgery and I am so excited this is an understatement, I will post pictures of my leg as I have done before, but my phone camera isn't working as soon as it is I will post, I could have hugged Mr Ramsden at my check up but I didn't I politely shook his hand and said Thank you so much, when I left the room I punched the air and cried tears of utter joy and happiness. So Happy.
The more people that have this done privately the better chance we have of getting it on the NHS eventually, I think it will be because this is a miracle procedure, an absolute miracle, loads of love Julie XXXXX
