you jim? damn didnt know. you dealin with it okay? you CAN adapt a kneewalker (what i  use) to make mobility a tad easier vs a wheelchair (which i have but dont use). a seatpost from a montain bike and seat works. (see battlecow thread) anyhoo, its been just 2 mos how  is stump looking now? doc may be waiting a bit for  this. but if there is a hanger clinic in your area theyd be the folks id suggest.  i fell in shower and did something to my right (dominant) leg yesterday. jus saying try not to fall if you  can avoid it. anyways feel free to keep posting up here. and pm me if you wish to talk in private.

on the battlecow (kneerover all terrain) and the roscoe unit a mtb seatpost and a schwinn zero pressure seat. converted a kneewalker into a butt roller. doesnt turn as easy as my wc but allows you to maneuver over obstacles..

wecmoe back jim, nthing new to report yet, other than arthritis on dominant leg and muscle pains etc. once i can afford a visit to an ortho will check into this. you of all people know how we take a simple thing like walking, for granted. then you have to learn to do it all over again. if you wish theres a facebook group out there for amputees, ill find its link and send it to you via pm
