Back to the hospital for more leg-related shenanigans.

This morning Ian turned the cast he took yesterday into a clear fibreglass socket, which will form the basis of the new prosthesis.

He gave it to me to try on and checked it for comfort and fit. The most noticeable thing was how much more secure it feels than the limb I have at the moment. Because it's held in place by a pin it feels like it's attached to my leg much more firmly. It's also much more streamlined than the bulky beast I'm wearing at the moment.

Ian marked the areas on the socket he'll cut away and got me to stand up in a metal frame to make sure there were no pressure points.

All looks good so I eagerly await the finished product....
