Yet Another Relieved Surgery Patient Is Loving Guided Imagery

22 Oct

Cheryl just got this enthusiastic note from a happy, relieved post-surgical patient in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, following a 12-hour bilateral tram flap reconstructive surgery (construction of the breast from the lower abdominal skin and fatty tissue.

Dear Cheryl,

Just a quick note to let you know how effective the downloads on "Successful Surgery" have been for me.

I had major surgery (Bilateral Tram Flap Reconstruction – which is reconstruction of the breast following a mastectomy) which took 12 hours to perform last month.  My recovery was nothing short of amazing. The doctors and other health professionals said my recovery was very impressive compared to others who had had this sort of surgery done.

I am certain that by listening to the downloads twice a day (for one month before surgery), during my 9 day stay in hospital, and still listening even now (3 weeks post surgery) I am still enjoying the rewards of healing and pain management, as well as having a positive mental attitude.

Please pass on my sincerest gratitude to Belleruth.  It truly works and I will be telling anyone else who is having surgery to use the downloads.

Many thanks,

Kindest regards,

Miranda K. from Brisbane
