Woman who was left paralysed cites breast enlargement surgery as catalyst to walk again
A young woman who was left paralysed following an accident at work said breast augmentation surgery gave her the confidence and inspiration she needed for her to learn to walk again.
Nicola Woodman, 26, from the West Midlands life was turned upside down when she was left partially paralysed after a lifting injury she fell victim to at work.
The lack of feeling in her lower body meant she had no choice but to wear a colostomy bag, which left her confidence in ruins.
In a bid to get her life back on track she decided to undergo a boob job to recover her self-esteem.
Her surgery saw her breasts increase by five cup sizes, from 32A to 32E and she has credited the operation as being the catalyst for helping her to recover.
Miss Woodman, a healthcare support worker, come to be paralysed in March 2012 after lifting a patient at work had damaged some of the discs in her spine.
Miss Woodman was undertaking rehab so that she could learn to walk again. However, due to her slow progress she took the initiative to boost her confidence and lift her spirit. So in July this year she decided a breast enlargement surgery would give her the motivation to keep working at her recovery.
