It's not as easy as just getting up and walking and getting a leg. It takes a lot more patience and time.
Realizing the benefits that the prosthesis actually provides us, and how it allows us to live somewhat normal lives, is worth the work and effort.
I have a lot of goals for the future. I want to learn how to surf. I want to go back to work. There's a lot of things that I want to do that I'm going to do.
What I've learned is just because I lost a leg doesn't mean that I can't do what I did before. Life changes, but you learn to adapt. For the most part, I continue going on, and I get to do what I want to do—I just can't wiggle my toes.
