    Hi my name is Kathy and I live in NewZealand. I have been a RAK since July 03 as a result of cancer. I am onto my 3rd leg and It seems they have finally got it right as my walking is much better..at long last. I found being able to drive again after having my car converted one of the best things to happen after surgery. I returned to work As a dental therapist( A New zealand word for someone who works within the school system providing free dental care for all children).As a RAK it was just as well I had always used my left foot to "drive" the drill.! I did take the opportunity to reduce the number of days a week that I work.Something I had promised myself for years! I have had my" moments "like most new amputees but having somewhere to read others stories has been helpful.
