Larry from Centralia Washington. Haven't participated in any conversations but I've been around for a few year's. Been an avid fisherman my whole life but other than one trip to Blue Creek (no luck) havnt been to the river or ocean in close to a dozen year's. I need to put a stop to that nonsense. I lost my leg a couple of years ago and could use some encouragement...God Bless

Welcome to the Stage, Larry. My Dad lost a leg above the knee, but after an adjustment period resumed fishing with us kids, and swimming in the local pond with us as well. That made us very,very proud to be the children of such a determined & loving father.
You can do it too, Brother.....

I have chronic neck problems with all seven cervical vertebra damaged, torn rotor cuffs both left and right shoulders, currently have issues with my right hand and totally messed up left hand missing parts. Severe headaches near daily from the neck damage. I have blown out left knee (7 surgeries), and lower back problem. I had multiple heart attacks when in intensive care for pneumonia a few years back. The doctors tell me I have PTSD
from Nam, but I have it under control. On top of that, My wife had a stroke a year ago and was paralyzed on her left side. She is getting better, but still needs a lot of assistance. In spite of that, I managed to get her good companionship while I was gone, and fight through my own pain to go fishing for ten days.
If I, at 75 can do that, you can to. Just start with short trips and expand as you go, The therapy aspects will far outway the inconvenience.
I expect all of us give you our support, but bottom line is that only you decide where you want to go from here. Stay at home and miss your leg, or go out and rejoin the world. I know it is a bit of a hard response, but I am saying it like it is. The support is there. Just use it and start enjoying life again. No one is holding you back except you. Stay safe, but live and enjoy what you have.

Obviously Larry , you only have one leg to stand on for your reasons to not fish. Man grab a friend a family member and get back to the water. Only you can make this happen. And I really hope you do
