Oh yeah....if anybody wants to read about me and my experience....go to www.amputationhelp.com I am now 1 year since my operation. Due to a very bad back (I was on SSI disability before my amputation due to my bad lower back.) I still am using a wheelchair (because of my back pain) for longer runs but can drive fine and use a walker to get shorter distances.
Hi guys! I have been a little busy with the holidays, so I have not checked in for a while, but let me say now Merry Christmas to everybody! I am sorry this amputation thing has been such a depression downer for KathyD and many others. Try seeing your doctor and see if he might put you on something for depression. My doctor put me on paxil several years ago (My wife calls it my anti-asshole drug) and I think that has helped me a great deal.
