    Lost my leg in Feb of this year. I find this site strangely intriguing. And in a good way!

    Just here to make friends.

    Hi, I'm 22 and am considering amputating my right leg due to a birth defect I've been struggling with my whole life. I have no idea what to expect and would like to talk to someone who has been through this. Please reply

    Hi scaredlilgirl,

    You're not alone, check Viktoria on myspace, she has been through this exactly as far as I remember...

    Actually, here is the article.

    Extract:

    Almost a year ago, Viktoria finally had her dream come true and underwent a major operation to remove her deformed leg. She didn’t see it as a negative process, rather something to make her more perfect – having the limb removed was like having a rotten tooth extracted. “It was symbolic of many things,” she says. “Before I had it done, I saw myself as an unfinished person. If you looked at me as a marketing project, my skills, personality and appearance didn’t go together.”

    Viktoria remembers coming to after the operation. “The most fantastic moment I’ve had was waking up in the hospital,” she says with a cheeky grin. “Everybody else was freaking out. But I woke up and was the happiest little bunny you’ve ever seen. I was trying to speak to the nurses and couldn’t wait to see it. My boyfriend pulled the sheets back, and I saw this big bandage with a little stump poking out. It was so cute. It was the biggest release you could imagine.”

    If I were you, I would contact her and find out more. She may be able to help you go forward.

    Good luck and let us know how you make it.

    cheers,
    jt

    I have been a very successful amputee for the prior 46 years. I was 27 when I learned that I had bone cancer. Together with excellent medical care, no long term treatment, I walked on my first artificial limb in just 9 months. No it wasn't easy, but I have done almost anything I decided to do. So don't be afraid.
