WHEN Nicole Witts repeatedly went to the doctors complaining of intense headaches, earache, loss of hearing and twitching arms she expected to be given a brain scan. Amazingly she went for help to her GP a staggering EIGHT times and each time was sent away with explanations ranging from stress, postnatal depression and even sinusitis. She was given anti depressants and a nasal spray, but was never offered a brain scan despite her worsening symptoms. It was only when she suffered such a severe fit that she fell over backwards, turned blue and was rushed to hospital that doctors diagnosed her with a lifethreatening brain tumour - the size of an orange. They told her if she didn’t have it removed she would have been dead within six months as it was cutting off the blood supply to her brain. She had the nine hour operation and has made a good recovery, although she has been left with epilepsy due to the operation.

WHEN doctors x-rayed Rachel Demspter’s badly curved spine, they told her that she would have to have a major operation to straighten it. Without treatment she faced spending the rest of her life in a wheelchair, unable to walk. Rachel, ten, had a severe s-shaped curve due to scoliosis, and doctors said that the only way to straighten it was an operation which would put metal rods into her spine. But Mrs Dempster was so adamant that she didn’t want her daughter to have risky surgery, that she and husband David, 43, scoured the internet for an answer. She discovered a pioneering treatment for scoliosis offered at a clinic in Suffolk, which involves doing stretching excersises, hanging from a metal bar.

Beverely Knight weighed a staggering 32 stone she daren’t go outside as people used to throw stones at her. So for more than ten years Miss Knight, 35, lived the life of a recluse, ordering takeaway food to be delivered to her house and only venturing outside in the early hours of the morning. Now she has managed to lose a staggering 17 stone and is now enjoying living a normal life for the first time in ten years. Miss Knight, who lives in Hartlepool, said: ‘For the first time in my life I can enjoy going outside and just walking down the street like a normal person. ‘I was so overweight that people used to throw stones at me if I went outside - so I didn’t dare go out for ten years. I would only go outside when it was dark - between 2am and 5am - so I wouldn’t meet anyone. ‘Now I’ve lost all the weight I feel like I’ve been given a second chance at life, which I never thought was possible.’

Mrs Graham, 46, said: ‘People love wearing these legs as soon as they try them on. They take about 15 minutes to get used to the different centre of gravity, and then there is no stopping them. ‘When you wear them, you notice that the room is a lot shorter - door handles are a foot lower, but its really incredible sensation. The movement is really graceful - just like how you would imagine a horse walks.’
