Ellen from Holland

Recommended Posts

hi all,

I am Ellen from Holland, 24, and born without my right leg. I have my full thigh, but no knee, so technically speaking i am a through knee. I walk on a prosthesis almost all of my life, but I take it off more often when at home.

Hope to get in touch with others here!

Ellen.

Welcome Ellen. I'm Neal. I lost my left leg below the knee in April, 2004. Just recently had some minor surgery that makes the prosthesis more comfortable to wear all day.

There are plenty of people here. It's just been kind of quiet the past few days.

Welcome, Ellen! I'm also left-below-knee, since March 2005. I'm not sure why we all went "silent" for a bit there...we're normally a pretty social lot! Feel free to join in! :biggrin:

Hi Ellen,

I am Beth Marie from Saskatchewan Canada. Welcome to the great group here. I became an amputee in 2006 after the doctor trying to save the leg for 3 years. I do well and am enjoying life.

Peace. Beth Marie

Hi Ellen, Yes we usually are keeping the keyboards busy....don't know why it's been so slow lately. Guess we are all so tired of snow, snow and more snow. It's been an unusually long winter. Glad to have you aboard. Welcome! :smile:

Hi I'm Sue and I'm a LBK - birth deformity led to the amputation a few years later. Welcome to the boards.

Hi Neal, I just loiter around every so often and say something and disappear again. I am finished and now a fully qualified fitter working in London. I have just been working away and getting up to mischief. How are you?

I've had my share of ups and downs, but generally good. Keeping busy as ever. Speak up more often.
