Explanation

During first consultation, Mr Crinnion took his time in his explanations and he even used sketches to make you understand better. He answered my queries very quickly by email. He called me once to answer all my later questions. I am an anxious person and have worried because I haven't had a major operation for at least 30 years, but he made me feel confident that there is very little risk to the procedure. I had my surgery last week and it went well. I was able to walk normally immediately after. I was given a week's worth of the medication, but only used them for the first few days, which I took for precaution in case I get pain. One nurse have even mentioned I got the best surgeon for this operation.
