In February 2009, I was hit by a forklift at work and shattered my ankle and foot. Ive had 5 surgeries and at this point my ankle is fused. Nothing has worked so now the doctor is going to amputate it above the ankle.
The nurse wasnt there at my appointment, so nothing about the process was explained to me. Ive been researching about the process and prosthetics, but there is just so much general information i dont know where to start. About how long after the amputation untill I might be able to start getting set up with a prosthetic? Is there anywhere online that I can see what different types of prosthetics are out there. I know there has been a lot of improvements in this area, so I really want to research and get an idea of what I can expect for when the time comes.
Thanks in advance!
