About Me

I am living in southern Brazil but born in Germany.Due to a car accident I lost my left arm above the elbow on June,28,1984.On 19 of january 2005 a had my left leg amputated below the knee (tumor).On 3 of april 2008 I had a revision of my stump and was reamputated above the knee.Now I am completely cured and feel very good with my amputations however I haven't accostumed very well to the lack of my knee and thus the consequent instability of balance while walking with the prosthetic leg.But life goes on and we have to live with our restrictions without complaining.
