sounds odd i know but does any on here know any body who drives with just one leg ? if so i would love to find out how they manage , any difficulty's what the drive etc .
the reason i am asking is that i am facing the very real possibility that i will have my right foot removed before the end of the year due to a 20 year old injury that hast healed properly and is driving me mad with the pain and hassle all day every day, as some of you already know i have just passed my theory test and am in the last stages of lessons before taking test around the end of April or early may and i would love to get that done before it is taken of but i need to know how people cope with driving after feel free to PM me if you want to and all PM's will be replied to , why is this happening you say ? well Monday at work was the last straw when i fell down some stairs and and knocked seven kinds of krap out of myself and my ankle this isnt a sudden decision but one that has been a long time coming so far i have spent 4 years in plaster and 7 years on crutches since i first did the injury and taking a whole heap of tabs every day just so can walk and work is not doing me any good yes i could just sit at home and do nothing but my mum raised me better than that so i choose to work through the pain and constant swelling when it comes to driving i have to stop taking the tabs the day before so my head is clear and i don't want to keep this cycle up so loose the foot below the knee and be pain free but possibly not drive or keep the foot and keep taking the tabs and watch myself get further down my wife has been wonderfully sportive for the past 20 years and deserves to have to not worry about walking on sand or snow etc and me suffering after wards.
so i kneed information from people who live in the real world with an amputation and drive .
please please no sympathy posts that is not what i am looking for just solid information yes i can get a mobility car and have it adapted if needs be but again i would rather do some thing for my self and not have to rely on others to get me around and about mobiltiy isn't a problem after the op but i am concerned about not being able to drive now that i have the bug for it
not the happiest of posts i know but i would rather people understand why i am asking
thanks for any help
