Lower Left Leg Amputation
Due to injuries sustained after having a canopy collapse (due to dust devil), and the resulting surgery/procedures not giving successful healing, I am contemplating an amputation of my lower left leg.
I know various advice, comments and guidance have been given elsewhere in this forum, on similar, but I'm asking for tips/advice/suggestions etc here.
There's one other guy who is actually a fulltime skydiver here in Oz, who has the same amputation that I talk to and gain advice etc from. He has over 10,000 jumps does Tandems and the lot, and is a great source of info. I'm just looking for others perspectives as well.
I'd like to return to not only being a sport jumper, but doing AFF and Tandems again as well.
