Hi, seeking advice. My daughter has PFFD. We chose not to amputate her foot, deciding that she could make that choice on her own. She is 13 now, and is considering it...I'm am wondering if anyone has experience with this and can give insight on what to expect in regard to recovery, phantom pain, mobility, etc. thank you!

Investigate Symes amputations. I had a Symes amputation which is the direction that should be considered. The front of the foot is removed and the heel is brought up providing an excellent comfortable pad. I realize that much time has passed I hope she is doing well ...

I don't go to this site but once or twice a year. If anyone wants to ask me any questions in re PFFDs you can email me at
