I'm sorry to hear about this but admire your spirit. You aren't giving up riding but instead figuring out ways to keep riding. Seriously: good stuff!

Wow, this makes my recent bout of adult shingles seem like a mild rash. I give you credit for the great outlook and attitude. Keep things positive and best of wishes.

I have never heard of this happening before- I'm sorry that is just crazy. I agree with others in that your attitude seems right and in good time you'll heal up just fine. I used to have a friend that made prosthetics for a living and he always said it was amazing how well patients would adapt to their new parts- of course he attributed that to his amazing ability to fit one like no other doc could

Shocking to read. Take good care of yourself and come back full force in the spring.
How long do they think to get you fitted for a prosthetic?.
One of my friends lost part of her leg about the same place as you and was back on figure skates later the same year.
Keep thinking those positive thoughts

Sorry to hear of your hardship. With your positive outlook and modern prosthetics, have no doubt you will do well.
