10-year-old Ben Baddeley from Staffordshire is out of bed and has walked just over 24hours after an operation on his spine which will allow him to walk without pain.
Ben, who has cerebral palsy had the operation yesterday and is recovering in hospital in London.
His mother Amy Baddeley said:
"He is finally out of bed... took alot of bravery.. after all he has had spinal surgery. He walked to the toilet and is now in his physio chair posture sitting. He finds it a little odd walking because his legs are no longer heavy to move but every step is an improvement."
Ben Baddeley from Staffordshire is out of an operating theatre in London and back on the ward after Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy treatment. He has Cerebral Palsy and the operation this morning was to ease his leg muscles and help his movement.
Mum Amy has told ITV Central,
"Everything went well - he is all snuggled up and his muscles are relaxed. For the first time he looks comfy!! And he is no longer pale from the pain, he has a natural pinkness to his skin. Very tired and groggy but he is through it and doing really well."
