Since I joined PDFORRA MAS and from my initial consultation in October to my operation in February it took just over four months in Kingsbridge hospital.

Without the scheme I would still be on a waiting list for another year as my appointment to just see the consulted wasn't till 2020 and God knows how long I would be waiting for the surgery, since my accident in work in 2017.

With my complex surgery done I'm on the road to recovery and although there will be another 6 months of physio and hard work I am hopeful for a full recovery. I was very grateful that I was able to avail of this scheme, especially as I was at risk of discharge from Defence Forces due to not been able to complete my annual medicals.
