Hi Dave - I'm an AK also, for eight years now. Anita is right on with
her observations and her advice will stand you in good stead. In order
that we may follow your progress more insightfully it would be
interesting to know a few more things: how old you are? how long is
your stump? what was the cause of your amputation? how much do you
weigh? Also, how has the recovery been going and what troubles have you
had both pre and post op? Hey, we get right in there and probe, but it
pays off. You certainly sound sprightly and game enough!! This is THE
place to come for advice, and commiseration too. How did you find us,
anyway?? Cheers, George Boyer.
