    Question for my lady...

    My feet often squeak and it seems to be the foot inside the shell. It used to anny me, but now more recently i tend to ignore it. Have you tried Talcum powder? Or I guess that may make it clogged up. Hmmm, I cant think of any thing else to sugget. Hope you get insurance sorted soon. xx

    Swimming Legs

    Hi Ann, I am also a dBK, Just wondering why do you want swimming legs? To actually swim with or just get around the beaches as such. Have you been swimming since being an amp? To have NHS provision of swimming legs, I think there is a pretty strict criteria. I personally would want "my budget" (i.e. the amount that my centre spends on my legs) to go towards a pair of comfy, pliable and good everyday legs. Girly x

    Checking in...

    Hi all, Just a little note to say hi, I've been very quiet recently, not for any particular reason. I have completed my nursing degree, just looking for a job now. Hoping to do something along the lines of respiratory/ medical rather than surgically based. Life other wise is going well, not having any major issues from my legs- trying out some new liners for my prosthetist, they are going good. I did have botox the other month... not to be done again- it hurt and I didnt notice any benefit! Hope everyone is well.. Will check back soon xxxx

    Botox injections to decrease sweat?

    Hey everyone, sorry to drag up this old topic, but I am getting recurring folliculitis. My prosthetist has suggested botox to reduce the amount of sweat. He has said that he wants to find out a little more about it, as am I trying to look for some more info also. Has anyone had this?? Andy x

    Live Life then give Life

    Hey Guys, Some of you may or may not be aware, but 5 years ago I recieved a Kidney transplant, if it wasn't for this then there are som many things in my life that I would not have been able to do! So I am asking for your help. Basically Channel 4 (in the UK) are helping youngsters campaign against some thing that they feel passionate about. My friend Holly is, as I am very passionate about organ donation, and for this reason, this is her campaign. I am asking you all please to click on the link below and vote (by clicking on the green bit of the left). ttp://battlefront.co.uk/campaign/the-gift-of-life This is for such a good cause. Cheers Andy Life Life then Give Life!

    Washing you stump

    Hey guys, A little tip/ trick for you.... When washing your legs make sure you only use a downward movement, especially if you suffer from ingrowing hairs. (We use this method when washing patients legs that suffer from leg ulcers and if you want I can get some research to support this). I have also been using epaderm/ hydromol to wash my legs with, and is working wonders! girly x
