My name is Anton and I became a below knee amputee early this year. I am about to start my journey as a prosthetic user and I hope to share my experiences with other users via this blog.
I had quite a serious accident in January 2017 breaking my femur on my stump leg and my fibula/tibia on the good leg. This has meant that although I’m already five months down the line, I’m only just starting my journey to get a prosthetic fitted.
