Later, going through rehab, he fell in love with a nurse Jill. They married and settled in the town of Rotherham in South Yorkshire. Of course, Martin never dreamed of seeing his beloved.
Details under the cut later, he heard about the amazing recovery operations of which are conducted by a team of doctors led by Christopher Louis in Brighton, East Sussex County. Of course, the first person Martin wanted to see how it will be removed only with the bandages, was his wife Jill.
