    stump tip swelling

    [ Not sure if I am reading correctly, but I don't think he is wearing his prosthesis yet, Neal. Correct I'm not wearing the leg yet as i know the stump shape is different and I'll need a new socket, plus the difference in lenght, I think it's some kind of infection I'll be at the Dr. soon and I'll keep you all posted. I'm just affaird it's the MRSA back

    stump tip swelling

    i've not being wear the leg as there was more of the bone taken off, and it took quite a time to heal due to the mrsa, it's odd as some part of the day its not to red and other well it's more like a wiskey nose,and it doesn't look like a bruse. I'm back to my leg man this week so it will be nice to see what he think. as to me it does not feel right or look right.

    Online Chat?

    not sure how this would work but i notice as you read a topic it lists at the bottom how many members are reading it and who they are so you can tell who is online, if you were able to do what face book does and allow the members to chat or to give people the option to chat with the people that are reading. it may be something

    Jacqui coming home

    hey Jacqui good to here your home and all went well, thank for your reply, i'm home too and all went well with my op. i agree about keep the stump up, and banaged tight, i'm on lyrica and it's working for me. one thing i can say is do what the physio say and do the exercises, as they will be well worth it when you get fitted for you new leg. and keep the spirts up
