Back from a brief visit to Wales for what I hope will be the final fitting for the new leg.

The change from a pin-locking to a seal-in liner has given me nothing but trouble. Problems with friction and discomfort have forced my prosthetist, Ian, to remake the socket three times.

I was giving up hope of it ever being sorted out, but Ian's patience and persistence has paid off.

During today's fitting it finally felt as comfortable as I'd hoped -- although I'll need to break it in and wear it for a while before I'll know for sure whether it's right.
