“I was still only 19, my leg wasn’t right and I didn’t know what would happen to me next.
“The medical team ran on to give me gas and air, and then I was in the back of an ambulance.
“When I was on the way to the hospital, the doctor told me straight away that we would get through this, and that I would get back to where I was. I believed in it, and the medical staff and specialists believed I was able to handle it mentally.
“They had to move my kneecap aside, put a metal rod through the middle of the bone and attached it with two screws up there.
“From there the new bone started to grow and then it was just about trusting the medical professionals around me to get me back to fitness.”
