legging it

Well it has been a very long two weeks My stump no longer fits the socket.Hence a lot of pain.I have to wear the leg for about 20 min in the morning and 20 min in the afternoon.The rest of the time it spends it time parked in the floor board of my dump truck.My doctor whom amputated my leg refused at first to give me any more pain pills but relented and gave me 30 weak ones well I called a pain management doctor and he has been rather slow in looking at my file and has not returned my phone calls,fucker.Monday Hanger starts on my new socket I hope to god this one fits better then the first one which come to find out was botched the way it stands now I am 3 inches from bottoming out on the bottom but running the risk of crushing the fellows this has happened once and I dam near passed out it is pretty sad when you have to wear a cup when wearing a prosthetic leg

I know exactly what you mean paper it has been a a year and ahalf and I still can\'t stand more that 20 minutes or walk 50 feet. I was going to go see kinzy dr. but due to health reasons I couldn\'t go, but he seems like a good dr. maybe thats what we both need this time around a GOOD DOCTOR my prayers r with you, I have to say though you having to wear protection because of your knee makes me wonder. :)
