Lincolnshire man will not face trial over fellow biker’s death
Prosecution accepted plea to dangerous driving
Contact author A Lincolnshire grandmother who survived a stroke has been able to eat for the first time in two years thanks to a course of innovative treatment, after being told by the NHS there was nothing more they could do for her.June 26, 2022 All appeared not to be lost, however, as the organiser of another protest, planned for later this year was present and handing out business cards.Contact author The UK’s first double keyhole minimally invasive hip replacement surgery took place in Lincolnshire at Grantham and District Hospital.By Monday, 27th June 2022, 10:32 am Updated Monday, 27th June 2022, 10:53 am Aiden Ramsdale, 24, of Fairford Avenue, Beeston; and Patrick Mason, 31, of Whingate, Leeds, have both been charged with murder.
Diana Tavner, 81, from Sutton Bridge was admitted to hospital after her stroke in May 2019, which affected her speech.She was diagnosed with dysphagia and left unable to swallow.He said the turnout for Sunday’s event was “quite poor”.The mother of four, and grandmother of 11, had to be fed through a PEG feeding tube directly into her stomach and was only allowed small sips of thickened water due to the risk of choking.David Burford, 56, from Brant Broughton said he had always been an active person but had been struggling before he was diagnosed with osteoarthritis.After a series of x-rays showed no improvement, she was told there was nothing else the NHS could do for her and she fell into a depression at the thought of never being able to savour a meal again.“At the end of the day, it’s a thing not an actual human being – if she was here maybe a few more people might have turned up,” he added.Diana said: “I knew I couldn’t swallow straight away.
One of the worst things at that time was when they went round asking the other patients what they would like to eat and they just bypassed me because they knew I couldn’t eat.| Image: RSM Photography Keith said his organisation was “not party political”.However, he was out of bed and on his feet within two days of his surgery.“I had a PEG fitted and they let me go home with all the equipment to feed myself through the tube.But it used to take five and a half hours a day.He also wanted the protest to be a party to “celebrate coming together” with plans including Samba and brass bands.I was so upset that they felt there was nothing else they could do.David Burford was the first patient to have the procedure at Grantham and District Hospital.” Diana’s daughter spotted an article about VitalStim, a procedure which uses electrical stimulation to strengthen the muscles, which has proved successful with other stroke survivors.Keith believes the monument should go in the “amazing” museum, as Thatcher did not compare with the achievements [including becoming the first female PM of the UK] of someone like Isaac Newton, one of the other statues on St Peter’s Square.
However, the treatment is not available on the NHS and the VitalStim treatment sessions start from £150.Dysphagia consultant Sumathi Sinnappan (left) with Diana Tavner (centre) and her husband Colin (right).| Image: Daniel Jaines The controversial ‘Thatchue’ has divided the town since it was unveiled in May and has been the target of repeated vandalism.I couldn’t continue that way anymore.She booked a consultation and within weeks of completing a four-week course of treatment in July last year Diana was back on solid food – and even able to enjoy a birthday meal out at an Italian restaurant with her husband Colin.She said: “It really has given me a new lease of life, I can’t recommend it enough.It was officially unveiled on May 31, however, just hours before had been daubed with red paint and a Communist symbol was painted on the fence surrounding it at the time.I want other stroke survivors to know that it’s out there, to give them hope.“Within two weeks I was walking outside and I could get up and down the stairs without a stick.
“I really felt as though the NHS had given up on me.People gathered for the protest in Grantham on Sunday.I had four X-rays and after the fourth they said there were no signs of improvement.They just said, ‘we won’t send for you anymore, let us know if you notice any improvement’.| Photo: Daniel Jaines Only a few people turned out for the protest, but not the organisers themselves.As the days go on, I am continuing to improve.“How was I supposed to know if it was improving if I couldn’t eat anything? I was so depressed when we went home that day, I really believed I would never eat normally again.” Diana Tavner with her husband Colin, who said “It has been such a joy to see her cooking again and enjoying food.| Photo: Daniel Jaines Read more.
” When Diana had her treatment, she stayed in Stafford near to the VitalStim clinic run by dysphagia consultant and speech and language therapist Sumathi Sinnappan.Mr Antapur said: “Traditional hip replacements would require a 15 to 20 centimetre incision with release of many tissues around the hip to safely carry out the procedure.She had a week’s worth of treatments at a time and returned home in between.She noticed an improvement by just the second day, which was her third treatment, and said “it gave me hope that I might get back to some normality”.Diana said: “After the last treatment, Sumathi asked me what I would like to eat and I just couldn’t think of anything, I was so overwhelmed and hadn’t eaten anything properly for so long.“The average length of stay in hospital following surgery is 1.“Then on the way home I kept thinking about Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup, so we stopped to buy a can and I ate a quarter of it when I got home.
It was so delicious, I really enjoyed it.It was so nice and from there we just started to get back to normal.” Just last year, in May 2021, Mr Antapur and his team carried out the first SuperPath keyhole procedure on a single hip at Grantham.” Ms Sinnappan added: “People need to know that there is treatment out there.This lady believed she would never eat normally again, but now here she is going for meals out with her family.This treatment can change lives and my patients are so grateful.A surgeon would typically need to have carried out at least 1,000 traditional hip replacements before being able to undertake this kind of hip replacement.
