    Thanks for that my GP doesn't seem to have a clue he thinks that all tendons are removed so advised me to go back to limb centre.

    Stump HELP

    does anyone know if it is normal for the tendons to click on the bone of an aka causing o lot of pain and discomfort. It feels as though the tendon is crossing the bone like crossing your fingers then springing back to where it should be

    Hi Debbie my elective surgery was done last year and I didnt take any medication before. Afterward they gave me a lot of different meds to stop phantom pains but one day I decided to stop taking them because I wasnt sure if I was in pain or not. I havent taken anything since and the only phantoms I get are pins and needles in the foot I haven't got. Best of luck let us know how you get on. Chris. :D keep smiling P.S. I was in pain for 20 years before op

    leg problems

    Got my leg fixed again today, am keeping my fingers crossed :P (thats a joke). I wouldn't mind if I didn't know better but I do, my first leg was great, until it got too big, but now it's one problem after the other I seem to spend more time in the clinic getting it fixed than actually wearing it.

    leg problems

    My prosthetist is confused because of the ammount of variation in my leg from day to day the base of my stump went from 38cm to 34 cm in about 2 weeks so he made me a new leg but when i tried to fit it my leg was about 39cm so he made another, new size this was like wearing a pair of shoes 5 sizes too big,then he made the leg i have now but this is about 2 sizes too big and I am getting it altered on tuesday but on thursday all the bolts came loose and as a result I can't wear it at the moment. By the way its an above knee. The consultant is about as much use as a chocolat fireguard because unless your stump is full of sores he just says its nothing medical. :(
