    Thank you. My prosthetic doctor called me today to make me a new socket. I am as active as I can be with an ill fitting leg. A mixture of having to use my chair and my medication has caused my weight gain. I also hate my wheel chair because I am a very independent person and was very athletic before my accident. It's been 9 years and I still get emotional not being able to do things I once regularly had done

    Wondering what lotions would be great to keep from getting the constant Indian burn feeling. Also ways to strengthen and shrink my stump. I have gained 15-20 lbs since my new prosthetic and am prone to wheel chair most of the time which is not really a great idea being a stay at home mom. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Stump Shrinkage

    Hello, I'm Nicole and I have been an amputee since 2009. I was wondering how to shrink my stump. I have gained twenty pounds since I received my last prosthetic a few months ago. With my insurance they only pay for one once every 3 years. It is hard for me not to wear my prosthetic being a stay at home mom of two. Any suggestions?
