    Hi @Peglegjoeuk - & welcome to the community. Thank you for joining & sharing about yourself. Most of us here have a disability, but in particular I feel @janer1967 will associate as she is also an amputee. I hope she may contact you. I look forward to seeing you about in the community, & hope you find it helpful. Do please join in with the discussions. It's nice to 'meet' you. :)

    Your very welcome @Peglegjoeuk

     I sure wish I had some support outside family when it happened to me as you don't always want to talk to those closest to you and it is a life changing situation

    I hope your rehab goes well and you are soon back to re starting your life
