Revision Surgery

Posted by rachelhandler76 on March 16, 2014 at 4:15 PM

I decided to try a VLOG instead of a BLOG. I'm not sure how I feel about VLOGS. I think they come off as a little cocky sometimes. But I wanted to try it because I thought it may reach more people than most of my other blog posts. I think a common misconception about amputees is that once we've healed from the initial surgery, we can walk with a prosthetic leg and be done with the struggle. This could not be farther from the truth and I hope society can watch my video and understand the depth of our challenges. When you see someone walking with a prosthetic leg, be impressed! But don't be surprised to see someone with a leg amputation in a wheelchair. We all have different paths in life, some are full of more twists and turns than others.

Like I said before it was a good idea to make this youtube post. I shared it with the others. I also had the perception that the initial surgery was it before I met you. Most of the amputees I saw were in hollywood type movies. I'm glad I now know much better and I am proud of you. Hope you are continuing to heal well with the new ERTL. Talk soon.
