Claire Tickle, Lipoedema Sufferer Completes Final Surgery With Consultant Plastic Surgeon Anne Dancey And Confirms DEEP OSCILLATION® Was "Crucial To Her Post Surgical Recovery"
In three out of seven operations in Claire Tickle's surgical journey for Lipoedema, which have been carried out by Consultant Plastic Surgeon Anne Dancey, DEEP OSCILLATION® has been used pre and post surgically. Firstly, in order to prepare her tissue for liposuction and secondly to enhance and reduce the surgical recovery rate. Please read the full article below the LipoGraphic to discover more about Claire's lengthy journey; from being told at aged 15/16 by her GP that she was "fat and to go away and diet" to being diagnosed by Professor Mortimer in 2009, aged 32, with the painful adipose fat disease Lipoedema. Despite being refused Liposuction treatment on the NHS, Claire Tickle, a single working mother, bravely went ahead with raising funds. With the support of friends and family to improve her quality of life, she has had dramatic and life-enhancing surgery to reduce the constant pain of this chronic and slowly progressive disease. Though Claire still has some healing to take place, she now reports that she has 'no pain, which is heaven!" PhysioPod are very proud of Claire and her determination and wish her all the the best for the future. She has been a role model to other sufferers and has created a tremendous amount of awareness of this terrible disease through various media (including baring her ten stone legs on National Television). She has given others the courage to seek a diagnosis and get the help they so rightly deserve.
