Maybe its the type of liner I have, but they keep falling apart. Any leg amputee knows what hell it is to have a liner that’s too short.
Do you guys know of any fixes? It seems I have to get a new liner all the time. I’ve gone through 4 or 5 in one year. They just keep ripping where they rub against the rim of my socket, and once they rip completely, my skin is exposed.
I know I should change liners, but I can’t do that until I get a new leg. So, if any of you have ever dealt with it, maybe you’ve got some advice.
P.S. due to the ribbing on the outside of my liner that allows it to create suction in the prosthetic I can’t use socks to remedy it.
I understand this is a really big campus and I haven’t seen everyone yet, but I sometimes wonder if I’m the only amputee at my college…
