Welcome to the forum Kirk.

My amp was done in the US, but I'm an LBK like you. Ask as many questions as you like. There will be many answers.

Hi Kirk,

I had my rehab at Stanmore but lived in Clapham. The initial reason that I was in that situation is that I was originally in hospital in North London and so my consultant just referred me to Stanmore. Then once I started going there I didn't really want to change and so I just learned to suffer the long tube journey. If you're not happy with Queen Mary's maybe you could ask to change to Stanmore as they are good there. I think the NHS system is set up so that you can pretty much go anywhere you want to get your legs.

Queen Mary's is meant to be very good though, isn't it? What's up with your leg?

By the way I was 27 when I lost my leg and am 31 now, so am about your age.

Hi Kirk

Things always seem really tough when you first become an amputee, but I'm sure you'll get sorted out pretty soon.

Good Luck
