Guess what happened two day later???............... my arm was in a sling! and my sholder dislocated again! off in the ambulance again! same thing again! put me under again so they can put it back in! Wosrt thing about it! is it was out about 9 hrs before the hospital put it back in "That was more pain then my amputation! and raptured hernia oh yeah another time i had a crack ribe after a fight one night outside a nightclub" So hopefully it be all smiles when i leave hospital this time round after surgery? :D Better not catch that silly MRSA bug? or whatever its called? because i got that stupid bug when i had my leg off after my accident in 2001 Anyway here is me going on!!! Hope you get over it soon!!! and keep your smiles up :) :) :) Classic Quote YOU HAVE TO BE ALIVE TO MOAN I love that line

    Hi all!!! B) This is my first post as i have joined up today! Ok all it is, on the 28th of June 2004 around 8pm on Channel 5 in the Uk was a programme about artificial limbs! It really opened my eyes on certain new limbs. I am above knee amputee aged 31 & lost my limb 2½ years ago and to be honest i am a big boy with a large frame! The nhs has given me a leg which has been uncomfortable since I lost my limb. My main problem is i have very wide thighs, so therefore the suction sockets have been a nightmare for me, rubbing me all the time near the groin :( Ok back to this programme on channel 5. A european surgeon has a method of attaching a titanium pole to your bone in your stump and the bone grows to the pole and you have a little screw thread out of your stump! You would not need sockets at all as the pole is fixed all the time. To be honest i hate the sockets anyway. And for me its just the job as i have wide thighs! Has anybody on here have the same problems? What has been your solution? & does anybody know of this method being performed in the Uk? If anybody was watching the programme? Can you remember where this surgeon was from and what clinic it was? Love and Peace from Stephen
