Prosthetic Follow Up
After you receive your temporary prosthesis, your prosthetist will provide you with follow up appointments. It is imperative that you maintain these appointments and follow any instructions given to you by your prosthetist. Some of your obligations in between appointments will be sock management, hygiene, skin assessment, and exercises.
Follow up appointments are usually made once a week after receiving your temporary prosthesis. These appointments allow your prosthetist to monitor any changes in your residual limb, and proactively manage any issues that may arise.
After the first two months, the follow up appointments are less stringent, and are usually on an as needed basis determined by you and your prosthetist.
