    feeling everystep through me stump

    Hiya i wouldnt say pin & needles but there is a sensation in me socket , but i have lost alot of weight and was casted for that reason being my old iceross was a size 34 and now im in a 26.5 size soo the old leg there was alot of movement going on even with socks , and now im wondering its becoz im that snug now with it being suction socket . and i need time get into it .

    feeling everystep through me stump

    Hiya Ann yes very weird feeling the numbness, Ive never had this before they have swapped me foot to a softer heel from me old one soo i thought overall it would be alot better walking through and all but i dont feel it , When i start out to walk its fine and as times goes on then the numbness starts there is no red spots when i remove me iceross so cant be pushing on one spot but when i take me leg of at night now it aches like mad . Im going to phone My Limb centre to make appointment go in. Paul

    Suction Socket

    Hiya all, I am getting to think the suction is good just by the overall feel, the leg doesnt seem to hang of the stump like it does with the pin that heavy feel u get after having it on for so long, I ony have one ring onmine and i use hand cream to put mine on lynne .By the way u all talking there not good for the sitting part then... Ive had it on for the last 2 days anyway soo ill keep giving it ago, it feels lighter to when i lift me leg to get in the car. tc alll Paul
