I had an Ertl Amputation (BKA) on January 4th and, due to wound healing issues, have just received my temporary prosthesis. The prosthesis feels fine and when I take it off the only red marks I have are at the back of the leg and on the patellar tendon. BUT- once I take the prosthesis off (even after wearing it for short periods) I have violet, painful spasms with considerable calf-like muscle pain (the spasm look like I am trying to kick someone). During this time I cannot straighten nor bend my leg under or beyond about 85% without triggering one of these spasms. Has anyone else experienced this before? What helped stop it? Is it a muscle issue or a nerve issue? Any input is welcome!
