    New sockets not fitting

    Sunday, March 6, 2011, 5:55 PM [General]

    Hey I hadn't been on in a while.Been tied up with facebook. I am a double bk. Last summer I enjoyed adapted sports such as fishing, water sking, kayaking. Hiking my legs for a period were great. My prostetic guy said I was wearing to many socks time for my 3rd socket change. He decided to make my sockets the same size. Long story short I have a blister on my left leg which is my newest amp from wearing the too tight of a socket. Now I have to wait for the blister to heal and not burst it. How long should it take and has anyone had this happen to them"

    Sorry it took me so long to see your comment on my IPOP. I'll tell you, after a few weeks on my back and in a wheelchair, it felt wonderful to stand on my feet again! The best part, and please don't take this the wrong way, is that I was able to go to the bathroom and do #1 again standing, like a man. I felt so empowered! It felt normal! And I had been afraid that I would never really feel "normal" again.
