Dear Mr Farndon,
I would like to thank you, your surgical team, nurses and staff of the Duchy Hospital for the skill and care that was shown towards me. From first appointment to post-operative discharge I have nothing but praise for the way I was received and treated.
I delayed writing this letter until I could describe the positive effect the surgery has had on the quality of my life. I am pleased to tell you that it has been extremely positive. I have climbed mountains all my life and have this year been able to climb 2 in the Lake District. Prior to your intervention I would have no longer been capable of this. I have continued to perform the exercises that I was asked to do and more. I am convinced that they have helped enormously towards my recovery and current capabilities.
Just to make you envious I have also been diving in the Maldives with a whale-shark!
With very many thanks.
