Goodies from the Hospital

I was excited about this morning, not about getting up at 06:00 but going for my casting. Nothing I haven’t done before but this was for my first long term socket, which will hopefully make life easier and resolve some, if not all, my issues. Lynne (my Prosthetist) brought in the liner I will be […]

Two tests in one day

On Saturday I was still suffering slightly from Wednesday and just wore my prosthetic leg in the morning while I made a cake. I managed to get it so I couldn’t even feel the tendon, the trade off for this was I didn’t get in fully at the back of the top of my thigh. […]

Prosthetic art and my inspiration

Anyone who follows me on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Amputee/300078160015089 ) will remember a while back I asked for suggestions on what to draw on my prosthetic socket. I had some good suggestions and ideas of my own so I took ages deliberating before I settled on a design. The biggest problem with the socket is that […]

The best physio session ever!

Before I tell you about yesterday’s physio session let me quickly bring you up to date with the prosthetic leg situation since last Wednesday. Thursday bruised and couldn’t wear it, Friday was the same as Thursday, Saturday at Twickenham for the Rugby so didn’t wear it, Sunday I couldn’t get in it (nearly launched it […]
