    becoming a double amputee

    i too am a bi-lateral amp my stay was only 3 days here in the us but when i got home the hospital sent someone to make sure i had everything i needed to get around my house like rails for my privy a slide board to get in and out of my chair but my last amp took almost 12 months to heal well enough for a fitting on the leg and it still is not working properly but that is do to other issues you will be fine once you get your new leg and get used to it good luck on your surgery and may your recovery time be quick TJ

    Prosthetic "Discomfort"

    I aggree with the no pain if done right I know when I got my second socket for my left leg I was walking and having as much fun as my left hip would allow me with no pain but for a few seconds it took me to get where my additional socks where so that I could adjust the fit but now getting a good fit with the deformity of my left leg it is getting harder to get a pain free fit but atleast I am starting the process of walking again good luck with the fitting of your socket and try half socks I know they help
