Hi, my name is Kevinclayton30_!

Hi everyone, at the minute I'm a through the knee left leg amputee. But on 14th jan 2020,I'm having an above knee injury due to my femur bone protruding and I'm in a lot of pain which stops me wearing my prosthetic leg. So I'm wheelchair bound. Anyone else had this done?if so how are you getting on?Kind regards, Kev.
