One of the most important days in my life began when I had an appointment with Dr. Michael Morwood for a routine Xray and consult. I had been experiencing pain with my right leg knee and hip for over eighteen years. I had consulted other doctors and orthopedic surgeons in Massachusetts, but the appointments always ended the same way….”we aren’t sure what is wrong” or “we can’t see anything that would cause that pain.” I finally stopped trying and just lived with the pain. By the time we retired and moved to NH I couldn’t stand in place for any length of time, I had difficulties driving and I couldn’t walk on the beach!
Dr. Morwood came into the exam room and said hello and asked me how long I had been living with the leg pain. I told him, “eighteen years”. He said he had seen the test results, he had read all of the notes about my leg pain and he was ready to give me a diagnosis and a treatment plan that would start that day! I needed total knee replacements in both knees and the right knee needed it soon. He recommended I have a cortisone shot in both knees that day to give me some relief. When I was ready, we would start with a knee replacement on my right leg.
I had my right knee replaced and stayed one night in the hospital. Afterwards, I was able to stand with a walker and walk on my right leg. I had incision pain of course, but I had no pain at all in my leg, hip or knee…none.
Because of this talented, kind and gifted doctor, who had years of experience in robotic surgery, my operation was a success! Thanks to Dr. Morwood, the home care I received along with the love and care from my husband and daughters, my recovery was amazing. It was a miracle living without that pain. One Sunday, just before Christmas we stopped at two of my favorite beaches, from when I was young, where I always found sea glass. I was able to walk both of those beaches, from end to end, without pain. It was the best gift I have ever received. I am so very grateful and thankful that I met Dr. Morwood and his staff and for the care they have given me. He changed my life completely.
