    The (new) alternative fairy tale

    Once upon a time in an old prosthetics memorial home for knackered arms and legs, I came across a leg that was so old and worn, but yet it wanted to be used by someone who wanted to dance the funky chicken dance at the grand ol' opery. An odd ambition, indeed! George the Elephant still yearned for the time before he lost his leg; he used to be able to jump and dance and run. He practiced walking over sleeping alligators and then he practiced jumping over sleeping tigers. One day a television camera crew were watching George practicing, and shot some film. He finally saw how his gait looked. He was once a prince, handsome, rich and powerful, till, one day, he left it all! He lost his peanut allergy, but missed his mom. He longed for her, crying "Mommy" at night. He needed to tell that he was gonna get a prosthetic leg — the one hopeful thing he did his exercises every day all day. Gosh, it's true what Batman and Robin said about three-legged elephants: they're walking with a prosthesis. But what a prosthetic. It moved like a particle beam in the Hadron Collider. George would bounce along at a good clip stepping around screaming monkeys and quick sand pits. Lordy, he was happy. If only he could walk without looking down at his prosthetic leg he could see the traffic while crossing streets. The beautiful rolling hills above the sultry jungle stretched out as far as George could see. He wanted to dance with robin hood !! Oh my gosh, really! But Robin's in Sherwood. Uh~Oh that's too bad. But maybe if he could just hire a

    suction liner

    good luck to both of you with your seal in liners. I had a seal in set up to start with and it was comfy etc, but i couldnt bend my knee quite as well as with the pin system. also, if i banged or rubbed the front of my socket on anything hard, it would break the seal and i'd need a new seal. i find the pin system far better.

    Just wanted to say hi to you all

    hiya chuck, i've been a member here for ages but not posted for about a year. welcome x
  10. Hiya chaps, just reopening this link as i went snowboarding on friday. well, when i say snowboarding, what i mean is falling over a lot and getting rather bruised but having a go at my first lesson in snowboarding :) . I recommend it wholeheartedly if you dont mind spending time on your butt. I'm gonna heal for a while, then go back for another lesson. The main problem I had was that, at first you only have 1 leg strapped to the board. You're supposed to learn to get around by pushing with the free leg, but, no matter which leg that was... my prosthetic leg was off in the other direction of it's own accord. I think this may just be down to muscle control. My other problem was that my knees dont bend all the way and this made it dificult to get up once i'd fell down. After an hour of this, I'd managed to slide down a third of the nursery slope without going over and considered it a success. but my o my i ached the next day!!

    Alternative Fairytale

    Late last night, while dancing naked, I got cold feet, so I decided that I needed someone to put on a striped toe sock to keep my little pinky warm. I called to find out who was around to perform this task, but everyone was recovering from a whiskey-induced hangover. They seemed extremely annoyed at being awoken, jeering at me when I screamed. "Where's my goat!" The goat was found, dyed pink, with a frilly hat, and a big smile. Not to mention the giant earring hanging from his cute white ear lobe. I took him inside the goat cheese factory where they proceeded to photograph his brilliant blue eyes. While there I had an urge to sample their soaps and lotions, which, being naked, I smothered all the photographers with my arm pits. All at once, each photographer fell under a spell, the goat escaped, cheese started melting, and I continued smearing melted cheese in my hair. The aforementioned soaps were eaten by my hungry boyfriend, Geronimo Von Mellencamp. During that time, Geronimo's wife, Muffy, learned about me and my antics with the elephant

    THE SOCK GAME

    keep that silicone liner clean babe, it's soooo important, sweat is very good at breaking the skin down so you need to clean it off at every opportunity. haha, what a typical guy you are :P :P

    Nerve Damage

    Hi Lisa. I know you must be scared because I was told a similar thing when they had to keep nibbling more and more from my leg. It was to get rid of infection and at the same time i was being pumped full of antibiotics. My stump length below knee is now only about 4 inches and getting a good fit is difficult, also the nerve damage means that I have to be vigilant in checking for any changes or sores daily. I can't 'feel' anything in my stump but I look at it as a bonus because there's no pain most of the time either. Good luck with finding a solution and if the worst happens and you have to go above knee... there are a ton of people here that will prove to you that it's not the end of the world and you are strong enough and tough enough to cope. It wont change who you are or how wonderful you are.xx
