New Amputee Guide 1.0

As a new amputee, I was looking for information on what was going to happen next.

When do you get your prosthetic leg as a new amputee? When will I be able to walk without a walker as a new amputee?

That is why I wanted to put together this first Guide for new amputees. I hope it will give you some information on “what to expect next”. The most important lesson I learned as a new amputee was, everyone’s timelines are different. So take the information with a grain of salt and listen to your Dr on what moves to do next.

I do highly recommend connecting with a physical therapist in your area, if you don't have someone, reach out to a great free resource for amputees “CosiTalks”, she is your go-to one-stop-shop for everything amputee PT.

Another great piece of advice is to get yourself a Socket Socks prosthetic cover to dress up your test socket. Protect your clothing from snagging on that prickly fiberglass, try different looks before deciding on your final design with your prosthetist for your definitive socket prosthesis.

Have an Amp Awesome Day!
