    decision has been made

    Hi Ethan Best of luck for the operation will be thinking of you. I am Right AKA since Feb this year all a bit new to me still anyway regards driving It doesnt take long to get used to the driving. I went for a days assesment driving and have had a pedal conversion that cost me £320. it allows both me and my husband to drive the car, you just flip down the pedal you need left or right of the brake. Having my car is the nearest thing to getting back to normal for me so far this year I really enjoy it. All the best Lynda

    Hello MY name is Lynda and I had my right leg amputated above the knee in February after a car accident in Spain. I spent six weeks in hospital in Spain before being transferred to Southampton. I am 40 and I know they say life begins at forty but I never quite expected it to be like this! The support of my friends and family (and fantastic husband) have got me this far and I am looking forward to some support and advice from those in a similar situation. I have my first physio session tomorrow and as me and excercise dont get on this should be fun. looking forward to hearing from you. lynda
