    Where do I go from here?

    I started my adventure on the 14th of December. Vascular surgeon said I have gangrenous issues and the leg has to come off. I argued that a bka would seem more positive however he convinced me that an aka would be better.
    So of it came. At first I was bewildered. I didn't know how much I'd depend on other people.
    My wife did everything from driving me all over the place to the weekly shopping she was so used to,
    My sutures are itching terribly. I get some relief but not as I'd like to get.
    I got turned down for an electric wheel chair - this burned me up!
    I am a veteran of a vietnam era, My prime physician is the va, specialty clinics are also through the va. I live 200 miles from my va.
