I have been looking for an amputee forum since I had my accident/amputation seven years ago. I guess I did not look hard enough? I find it odd that in this day and age you can find more info then you know what to do with on most any topic under the sun....other then amputeeism(if that is a word).I never new what to expect and even to this day I don't know if the trouble I am having is to be expected or not. I am normally a very active person and expected to be much more active then I am now. In fact I was playing ball, golf, skating and all sorts of activities that I had done prior to my accident within a couple of months. Now I have trouble going shopping or walking accross the airport or even chasing my children. I am sure this is due to a poor fitting socket which I have been trying to have built for over a year. I haved been in and out of a temp socket for that long and have recently found most comnfort in the first socket I had. My leg guy is currenty working on a suction fit socket, which I hope is the ticket. I am currently in a pin lock style. I am happy to have found this site, it helps me answer alot of questions I have often wondered about. Even reading other posts and hearing of the situations others have help motivate me and make me realize that I am not alone.
thank-you for listening, and I hope to be an active member with many questions.
