I'm new here. I guess I'm new to cancer and even newer to amputation. I was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma in my left knee on the 25th of September, 2013 and I had my left leg amputated above the knee on the 11th of October, 2013.
I wrote a blog about my experience which went a little bit viral. Basically I wrote a break up letter to my leg. It was a bit emotional, a bit funny and a bit therapeutic. I explained my decision so that other people could understand it. I am a father to a 9 month old daughter and I am set to be married in February next year, so I have a lot to live for.
You can read about it all on my blog, here:
How are you coping with your cancer journey and/or amputation?
Are you trying to decide between amputation and other, less drastic types of treatment?
I'd love to hear from some people in similar situations.
