First-hand experience: Stuart's story
"Twelve and a half hours after
being wheeled down to theatre for major surgery to remove a tumour
from his spine, Stuart Townsend was finally reunited with his
family in a critical care ward in hospital unsure whether the
marathon operation he had just endured had left him permanently
paralysed. He was understandably groggy and lay still in his bed,
unable to feel his legs.
These were the early and understandably challenging first stages
of a lengthy and personal journey toward recovery, which would make
the 32-year-old father of three the youngest temporary resident of
a recently reconfigured Worcestershire County Council run
rehabilitation centre in Worcester."
