Hi Everyone,
 I appreciated all the replies to my last post! Now our newest dilemma....what do you do at the beach? Leg off or on while on the beach jumping waves. are there any waterproof protective devices that are effective?

Hi everyone,
  As my last post said, i have a 4 year old with a BKA.  He hops around without his leg, but lately has been having pain behind his knee and up his hip. How do most of you BKA's get around without your extremity? Crutches? Hopping? and old leg????

General Discussion / tendon enlargement
« on: March 08, 2008, 10:46:53 PM »
   My 4 year old son has a L BKA and i've noticed that his pelvic tendon, not sure which on, the one that attaches to his hip and then down to the femur is really large. He says he has no pain, and out prosthetist said this was normal. does anyone else have this issue? Is there anything i should watch for?
