    update

    Hello again everyone! I just wanted to briefly update my progress.. My amputation was on Nov,29. I am healing very well, better than expected. On Dec 29 I got my first leg, I am about 3 weeks into using it. I just started therapy today and it went well. I put my leg on when I wake up in the morning and I dont take it off untill a couple hours before I go to sleep. I will be getting my permanent leg in about 6 weeks. Im goin to be starting to drive again on monday, unless of course it is too snowy outside. Im very excited and happy with making the decision, and how my progress is goin. I cant wait to have my life back again and be doing all the things I used to do. :)

    Hello all New Rbk Here

    Hello everyone, my name is Chris. I am a new amputee. On November 29th 2011, I had my right leg below knee amputated. My original injury occured on September 16 2006. I was in a very serious car accident, thanks to a drunk driver. My right foot and ankle was crushed. The doctors wanted to amputate it from the start but I chose to have them try to save it. To make a long story short, I had 12 surgeries over the last 5 years to keep it and try to make it useful. Unfortunately my progress only went so far and then stopped, and about every year to year and a half I had to have another surgery. I was always in pain, and had absoultely no range of movement in the foot or ankle. I had lots of nerve damage, a large portion of my foot died and I had to have a series of skin grafts to replace the dead section of my foot. I wore an AFO brace for a few years, which to me was practicly a prosthetic leg, but with the issues of still having the messed up leg. So I decided very early this year that I wasn't goin to continue the seemingly pointless cycle of surgeries. I thought about having the amputation for 5 years, and I realized I am 27 yrs old and Im not getting any younger. The time is now or never, I told my self. The surgery went great, I was only in the hospital 3 days. I am already very happy that I made this decision. I got the best news this past Thursday, I should have my prosthetic before christmas! I can't wait to get my life back!

    Hello all New Rbk Here

    I can't wait to get back into skating. I love to roller skate, ever since I was about 8 yrs old. I have never been ice skating but I would like to try it.

    Hello all New Rbk Here

    Thank you all for a warm welcome to this forum, and for the positive feedback. I will be trying to get on the computer more than I used to, to post messages, and read and reply to others. I think it is great to finally be able to relate to others, and have others relate with me. I am definately looking forward to building some relationships with others on here. GOD BLESS EVERYONE! By the way, I live in Canton, Ohio. Maybe if there are others that may live near me, we could someday meet in person. Once I get more familiar with the forum I will add more profile information, along with a picture of my ugly self lol.

    Hello all New Rbk Here

    Hello Neal. I dont at all expect to have a totally painfree life, but I am already in less pain than what I was in. The way my foot was before was as if I was wearing a roller blade 24/7, having that stiff feeling because there was absolutely no movement in the foot or ankle. I am sure I will have to adapt just as I had to before. I happen to have the upper-hand on most amputees because my leg was about as skinny as my arm before the surgery do to all of the muscle atrophy from not having a moveable foot. Therefore, my swelling as the doctors have said is very minimal. I get my stitches removed tomorrow, and I get the shrinker on thurs, and then the following tues I am getting fitted for the prosthetic. I was given the removable hard dressing the day before I was discharged from the hospital, and within the following 4 days I was already wearing all 6 socks given to me. Whats kinda funny is that the remaining muscle that I have on my stump seems to actually fucntion more than it did before the surgery. And I also think I maybe lucky because I have 100% normal feeling in the stump, as far as touch and feel sensation. Absoultely 0 numbness. Right now I feel the same exact nerve pain as I was before, so there really isn't much new sensations at all.
