A newbie

Recommended Posts

:D Hello Everyone,

I am a new member and wanted to introduce myself. I know many of you from other forums. Just wanted to let you know "I Made It!" .

For those who don't know anything about me, I am a LBK amputee. I was operated on December 20, 2005 due to complications of a Charcot Foot.

I will be casted tomorrow for my first prothesis and I am very excited. Some of you know that I am documenting the process for my own learning and to hopefully use as a tool in a support group I am starting.

It is a good thing to be here.

Deb AKA Stumpy!
