Good morning, and I have some questions. I go on Wednesday to get my second casting. I think we will also be discussing my fulltime leg. I know that everything I read about the Perfect Stride II is good. Right now I have an Otto Bock flex foot rated for 280 pounds. I need to get a foot that has the ability to withstand when I have to lift something over 50 pounds. Any suggestions for this? I also have an idea that I am going to get the gel inner lock system. I hope that is correct. I have come to find over the past few days as my residual limb shrinks that I get some chop sticking or popping on the inner bone. Any suugestions on a system that will help reduce this? I am going back to work as soon as I have all the adjustments made to the final leg and my work skills demand that I spend a good deal of time on my feet, and I am too old to change careers, nor do I want to. Any suggestions on systems or setups that can accomadate this would be helpful also. Thanks for taking the time, John.

It's a lie that's hard to disbelieve in the moment, and it's only after we've indulged in the impulse that we realise we fell for it again. I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
