Amputee and pregnancy

Recommended Posts

Looking to talk to woman who have experienced pregnancy with amputation. I never knew pregnancy could mess up my leg. How long did it take for your leg to be "normal" again and did you fit back into your prosthetic?

 

It's been almost 7 years with a bk ERTL amputation. I never had any issues till pregnancy. At 7 months pregnant my leg swelled and my prosthetic didn't fit properly. I ended up with sores. It' been 6 months since I gave birth and my leg is almost back at it's normal size. The leg is but not around the end of my leg. It' been very difficult trying to care for my baby and not being able to get out much. Nothing like being sleep deprived and dealing with discomfort. Would love to hear other woman's experiences!
