The Montefiore has plenty of metered parking bays on the roads surrounding. it is also close to Hove and Brighton train stations, both about a 15min walk. It is also well serviced by Brighton Buses being on the no.7 route which runs every 8 minutes.
Funny that you can meet someone for 30 minutes and then put your life in their hands! Friends asked before my L4/L5 microdisectomy last week whether I was worried. Having made the decision to have the operation, there was no point in being worried, as I had to assume you know what you’re doing.
Thank you for applying your skill and experience to my disc. The result is like walking into a darkened room and turning on a spotlight. From immense pain and discomfort, gradually increasing over the weeks since the beginning of March, and walking with the aid of my step-father’s stick, to NO pain. Night and Day; Chalk and Cheese!! Brilliant!
I had a bad back for years, and eventually went to the doctors after a second occurrence of sciatica symptoms which lasted for over 3 months, giving me terrible pain. The MRI actually showed an underlying issue of degenerative disease in the L4/L5 disc .
I saw Mr Cass who gave me the option of either a disc replacement or a fusion. After considering both options I went for a disc replacement – and haven’t looked back since! Staff were amazing, answered any questions I had and made me feel included and informed throughout. The surgery itself went well. I had been told that I would probably be up taking a few steps the same day – I wasn’t convinced! Low and behold – that evening I was walking (or should I say shuffling) around the hospital, and able to do a few stairs. The pain was more than manageable and I was home within a couple of days.
Recovery was very easy too. Despite what I had been told, I imagined I’d be bed-ridden and in a lot of pain and would need a lot of help to do the simple things. But no – within a few days I was out walking the dogs, able to get around the house, and do most things that I did before. I kept up with basic painkillers but can honestly say, to my amazement, that there was virtually no pain – neither in my back nor from the wound on my tummy.
Over 6 months on I have never looked back. I ride my horse and will be out competing again this year. I’ve been on two skiing holidays and can do whatever I like. It took me a while to realise certain movements wouldn’t hurt, and it made me realise how much I’d learned to live with pain that I didn’t realise I had, and had changed the way I did things or moved.
Thanks to Mr Cass and his team I now feel ‘normal’ again!!
