I figured this would happen

I went this past Monday to the prostetist to get my new leg made. Casted, and fitted, all same day. the guys are amazing. It felt good. Fit good. The only problem is when I walk, the top part wants to flap back and forth. So I have to go back tomorrow to have another one fitted. this one will have to be fitted tighter in the top part of it. It seems as if on the toe roll and lift up, the top wants to flip, which causes a milking type effect on the distal end of the limb. I’m the first in Pa to have the new Iceross seal in liner. The one with five ribs on it. The old ones use to have one rib for seal. It seams pretty cool so far. I can imagine it will be good once we get the pros to fit correctly. It’s just frustrating trying to get a comfortable walk. Once I get a good stride going it starts to clap really bad. So I’ll keep you posted as to the progression. I’m going tomorrow night after work. My guy is going to work a late night in order to get it done for me. What a guy! I haven’t quite figured out my design yet either for this one.
