Who is Awaiting ACL Surgery in the UK
« on: April 06, 2010, 12:45:34 PM »
Hello - I've been searching and searching and lost a thread I was following with some really nice people and postings.
Finding it hard to remember who's just had surgery and who's waiting.....
Can I ask if anyone is interested in replying who's in the UK and currently in the system (NHS or private) for ACL reconstruction.
There must be a lot of us because trying to get an appointment with an consultant is like golddust!

Try looking in the Cruciates section as that is where many of the ACL threads are.

If you contributed to any of the threads you are looking for you can either click on "Show new replies to your posts" which is at the top and in the middle of the page next to your profile name. Or you can look at your profile and then click through all the messages you have sent recently to see if you come to the thread you are looking for.

Good luck - searching can be a nightmare if you cannot remember too much about who or what was being posted!

Sue - amazing - thank you.  I didn't know about the profile button and can now and I can find everything.
I've loved reading your posts though can't message directly yet as haven't got enough PM's.
Have an appointment with Sam Church in the Lister Hospital? Anything you can tell me??
