I've been shopping!

Postby Carli Dogstand » Fri Jul 20, 2007 11:10

hello everybody

sorry I haven't posted for a bit; I've been a bit depressed as my leg is bad and I can't walk much.

However, Ebay has cheered me up!

OK, a little bit off topic, I admit, but some of the girlies might like my new bracelet....

1. it's a bracelet!

2. I'm an amputee (I was affected by amniotic band syndrome before I was born. Anyway, my prosthesis doesn't fit, so it left me with abrasions that lead to an infection called cellulitis which can be quite nasty. so I can't walk and I'm quite fed up. New leg = £6000. Harumph.

a new bracelet is cheaper and more exciting than a new leg!

You could probably get a new wheelchair for less money than a new leg. Then you could get someone to push you around all day and pretend you're royalty or something. And if they are disobediant, whack 'em with the old leg.

Nice bracelet by the way. :D

It's a very nice bracelet.

One of my best friends is an amputee, she had cancer of the knee, but they had to remove half way up the thigh to make sure htey got all the damaged cells.

What'd the NHS view on the cost of a new prosthesis?
Won't they contribute? Or is it in fact the NHS that's charging such sky high prices?

I'll leave it to Mrs D to fill in the finer points there, but the NHS will pay for the basic skeleton of the prosthesis, but do not provide a covering that anyone would wish to been seen with, especially anyone as beautiful as Carli. Fortunately, with the development of film special FX silicon coverings, certain firms will set to work creating limbs which are as lifelike as you could imagine. This however comes at a great price as Mrs D says.
....but it is the difference between Image and Image
Mr Dogstand.

amniotic band night! Last leg of the tour, the lost leg tour, the plastic leg of the toe-er. The toe-er?
