Residual Limb Shrinkage
I have a few questions regarding my residual limb. First of all I recieved my new socket on March 26th. I still have to start the day in my old leg and after my limb shrinks I can put on my definative leg. Is this normal and will I shrink to the point that I will be able to start my day in my final leg? Also, will I ever shrink enough to NOT have to wear a shrinker sock to bed? And last but not least, does anyone else have problems when the weather changes? My residual limb swells and aches so when it is rainy and damp. Is this normal?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
