The operation was successfully completed with Dr Pat Kiely and the Meath woman is now and taking some much-needed rest and receiving the best of care from good her parents.
"The doctors, nurses and physios in Tallaght were all incredibly helpful and made me feel very comfortable and took care of me every hour I was there," Lyndsey told the FORUM today.
"I'm itching to return to training, I'm extremely tired after operation, but super excited to get back to action soon," she added.
Lyndsey was the first non-native to represent Poland having resided there for almost five years.
