Good day! I am an amputee (above the knee) and this summer, we are planning to have my own prosthetic. I want to ask, how does it feels wearing a prosthetic? Is there a possibility that avm will again occur in my stump? How heavy the prosthetic is? I heard from a PT that you should exercise your stump in order for it to be strong and able to lift the prosthetic, but my concern is I can’t do that much exercise 'cause eventhough the worse part of my foot/leg was already removed, my blood vessels in my stump is still larger than normal ones so I am afraid if lifting a prostetic might stress my veins and arteries.
Though my doctor already told us that I can wear prosthetic but my doubts and questions are bothering me. Do you have any ideas? Thank you in advance.
