Dad has prosthesis on right leg, now left leg swelling


Posted by blushes1960

My Dad has his lower right leg amputated last year and has been fitted with a prosthesis.  He is doing well with it and walking with it, but now when he starts walking his other leg is swelling.  The amputation was caused by 2 factors, first he had 2 &3rd degree burns on his right foot that caused a bone infection..they then discovered he had mild diabetes with complicated the healing.
