Recommended Posts

hi, im new here and thought id better introuduce myself, my names ben im 22 and have been a left aka since april last year. I had an accident on my bike in march last year after lots of attempts to save my leg they had to amputate. As well as losing my leg i broke lots of bones(pelvis,legs,ribs,arm,fingers) split my aorta,got nerve damage and snapped ligaments in my knee. so its all taken a while to heal and i finally got my leg in jan. ive only got a fixed knee at the moment because of al the other injurys but im just starting to walk without sticks :D and in a couple of months i should get a free knee.

Well thats me, i thought id join and hopefully i can help people with there questions.

Hello Ben, I'm not far from you, welcome... we might bump into each other at some point, you never know... PM me if you fancy a pint sometime... I've been an AK for 25 years and your story is very similar to mine.

Hi Ben, no I don't, I only go to Portsmouth to watch footy ;o)... Play Up...

I used to, but for no bad reason, I don't now.

Hi Ben, welcome to the forum. I have met Oneblueleg, and I can tell you that he gets his leg made up from ship breakers yards and army surplus :)
