Is there anybody out there who has had an amputation of the foot, especially recently? My son is going to have one very,very soon, maybe today. I have questions and need advice that only someone who has gone through it can give. Personal experience. Thanks.

My heartfelt sympathy. Fortunately I do not have any answers for you. It mighthave turned out differently for me last January, but the Drs were able to sve my legs. I have only gone through the almost experience. It was frightening enough. I hope the doctors and nurses can answer all your guestions for you and your son.

I wish I had answers or resources for you but perhaps a call to your local United Way Agencies may have support sources for you to check into. You may also find non United Way groups and organizations in your yellow pages under "community service agencies" that may be able to offer assistance during this difficult time for you and your son. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you both and if there is anything that I can say or do, please let me know.
