Well I haven't got round to doing my vlog yet, but I will I have been really busy trying to get my tea business up and running.
What's happened so far:
1) contacted PACE saying I wanted to go ahead with Ossio Intergration, they gave me the name of the German Dr Hoist.
2) I emailed Hoist introducing myself and he's been very friendly and requested x-rays and pictures of my stumpy. Luckily I had, had xrays done recently due to my neuromas so made an appointment with my plastic surgeon to get them.
3) 2 weeks later got in to see Mr Dewar whilst in the meeting he emailed me xrays and MRI scans to my home. (this was a pre booked post op review anyway.) these are the xrays I posted in my last blog.
4) got home took pictures of my stumpy and compressed and sent everything to Dr Hoist, he was happy replied the next day that I did not need the 'thinning down tissue procedure' that would take the operation over 2yrs. That I was an ideal candidate and the whole thing would be sorted in 6 weeks!
I was totally shocked at this news and this made me re think things. If I went ahead then if all went well by the end of this year I would have a new leg and be socket free!
So I went and had a good long think weighed up the pros and cons and thought fook it go for it!
So I've booked a consultation with Dr Hoist in Germany on Thursday 13th June. ARGH!!!

Taxi to hospital from airport £? will fill in on return

Will make a list of questions to ask and let you know how I get on.
