  1. Hi All

    I'm interested in all aspects as recommended by some amputees I have spoken to from limbs for life. I was not sure what section to post under so just picked one. This is al new to me and I just want all the knowledge I can get and hopefully it will give me the tools help me mentally (what I mean is I could mentally prepare if that's at all possible) I appreciate all the feed back so far. and in my own confusion will make typing mistakes and even leave people puzzled and confused in my wording. I appreciate all advice and even people asking me to be more clear.
  2. Hi All

    Forgot to mention that there is a Pain Specialist involved in the amputation to ensure I have the best pain relief on board.
  3. Hi All

    I had a work accident in 2005 I shattered my tib & fib . I came of a ladder and left leg got all the impact (ankle dislocated aswell) I had staff infection and eventually developed Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome and also have a Spinal Cord Stimulator. I have had numerous operations. I have being in a Surgical Boot since 2006 I struggle to walk properely and keep up with my kids. I also struggle with a walking stick. The chronic pain is not the reason for the amputation. The reason behind it is I need better mobility and due to needing more surgery anyway I was asked to strongly consider amputation. I have had about 5 different medical specialist opinions and they all agree it's for the best.

    I'm bad Sorry Cherylm Let me start again I'm new to this forum. I live in Orange, AustraliaI'm married with two boys aged 4 & 5.I'm scheduled for a below left knee amputation on the 12th December 2013 (pending approval from insurance company)I also suffer from Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome.I roughly know what to expect but am open for advice on how to adjust both for myself plus family. I'm nervous, bit scared but all medical experts say my frame of mind will help me greatly in my recovery. (Being I except its for the best)
