New Socket

Just a short post to say that I received my new socket on Tuesday.

Breaking in a new socket is a bit like breaking in a new pair of hiking boots, only the carbon fibre and kevlar don't mold or wear in, the leg-flesh does all the adjusting.

Because my last two sockets have been so big, I have new/different loading points on my Lend (Limb-End) to adapt to. This means an awkward uncomfortable feeling that gives me a bit of a limp. I wouldn't call it pain, it's just uncomfortable.

I'm hoping my leg will adapt quickly. It did last time so I'm not too worried. Either way, it's much better than having a socket the size of a garbage can strapped to my leg, so I'm a happy camper.
