A woman who had broken her rib for more than three months was finally able to use a broken-wing treatment that allowed her to fly again.
The 27-year-old was flown to Sydney’s Kings Cross Airport after undergoing a broken rib in her right leg.
But she still needed to undergo a series of tests before the treatment was approved.
“We were hoping that I would be able to fly,” Ms Dutton said.
“But after a lot of work I got the green light and I was able to be able [to fly].”
The woman, who does not want to be identified, said the treatment, which was available to everyone over the age of 18, helped her regain her mobility.
“I was able [of] flying with my broken leg and it was a lot more comfortable,” she said.
“It helped me get back to where I was at when I was flying, but it was still a long road.”
Ms Denton said her treatment has been very beneficial for her health.
Ms Denton has since been taking a break from her job as a teacher to concentrate on her rehabilitation.
She said her rehab is just getting started.
“[It] is very difficult and it is definitely challenging but the results have been really great so far,” she added.
The woman said she had been flying since she was a toddler, but broke her leg in 2010.
She said her rib injury and other health problems forced her to take a break.
However, she said she is looking forward to returning to the skies again.
