    implant worries !!!!

    so , most of you regulars know I have a fairly new idea in prosthetic attachment , a couple weeks ago an internal screw came loose and allowed the implant to fail to a certain degree , flew to chch to get repaired , .... then 6 days later I take a step sideways and I hear the familier "crack" of a bolt coming off its torque setting ....fuk I say , ... so down to chch , add thread tape and a split washer to see if it helps , the use of Loctite is not allowed , so we are looking at a different foot which has a torque adapter to take some twist forces out of my leg ..... enjoy the pics , and remember , none of this hurts ....

    You need a Nyloc nut Stumpy.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Holy shit-fuck Stumpy. That stoma is ok? I sure hope they get you sorted with a prosthetic that's reliable. The technology is incredible, but you've got to be able to trust it.

    Get over the coast and get @tui_man2 to make you an improved version with a carbon wrap.

    Under warranty I hope.

    How does the flesh/skin seal round the steel, I would have thought it would be a very hard to keep an infection away from it.

    hi , so the stoma never heals , but it gets whats called mature granualation , and is simple to keep clean , the risk of infection is very low the skin does a great job at keeping it all sealed (sort of)
    cheers

    My wife had a stoma for a bag when she had bowel cancer, luckily only for 3 months then reversed. Easy to manage, except for inflamation from the adhesive from the bag fixing. Any infection would have been a pain, but the body copes extremely well.
