Thumbs up Happy Amputee

I had an ankle fusion go bad back in Feb. 2014. The hardware was infected with Pseudomonas and the infection started traveling up my tibia. After several PICC lines with home infusion, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and mega antibiotics, I chose a BTK amputation this past Feb.
I am now in my 2nd temporary leg and it just gets better every day! I am so glad I had the amputation and never regret it. I am doing therapy twice a week and walk with a cane. I am now getting my life back and am very happy! I am looking forward to getting my permanent leg in a few months.
The anticipation of death is worse than death itself!
