My Leg Is Getting AMPUTATED…AGAIN!? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Getting the same leg cut off twice….



hello hey Joe it's Karen from a news station how are you so I just want to follow up on the news story that we did a couple months ago on you we just were so inspired by your brave and courageous story to you know cut your leg off to have a chance in a better life and just wanted to follow up on that story get some comments we were you know so inspired by it you know it was a great story huh you know it really was and we would love to do a follow-up piece on what you're doing now that your life is so much better you know I have you uh run any five K's or done you know gymnastics backflips on your cool new carbon fiber rocket butter whatever you guys call them no not really not really I thought I thought one of your goals was to was to run and be active get my leg cut off again I just thought I was just going to become one with the couch instead bench with a call though it's really great to hear from you bye what's an individual yeah so I'm getting my leg cut off again good morning my beautiful internet friends and welcome back so here's the situation this isn't a hundred percent yet but it's pretty darn close to it we're getting close to it anyways I am getting my leg amputated a second time this same delay what does that happen to pity party for one please Thanks I haven't given you guys an update on my leg stuff in a little while it's because we've been really trying to figure stuff out it's been confusing it's been all over the place I have not wanted to talk about it until I really knew something and long story short the pain has gotten worse pretty much every day just like a little bit by bit there's definitely a lot that's wrong and I went up to see a new surgery and a couple weeks ago which you guys knew about and he said that you know you would definitely probably need surgery to like try CBD oil for a little while but we both knew that that wasn't probably gonna do anything you know fingers crossed but it didn't do anything and so the next step was to have surgery but to meet with a plastic surgeon first but here's the cool part I met with that plastic surgeon I thought I was gonna be talking to him about like the skin issues that I was having cuz he's a plastic surgeon right wrong this is like the guy in the state maybe the country I'm not sure for targeted muscle reinnervation this has shown me massively helpful and massively successful nerve pain and phantom pain and just issues that amputees have and I had no idea I literally had no idea that I was walking into that appointment I was really cool to be able to talk to him but there is a chunk of recovery time for that and with how things are laid out in my leg and the issues that are happening it's going to be a lot simpler to just redo the whole thing to literally cut my leg off again but do you remember awhile ago and we were talking about how my leg was like longer than is normally left after amputation surgery how bizarre is it that that actually ended up working in my favor I think we could kind of call that a blessing now and like disguise in in retrospect I don't know we are waiting on one final CT scan to make sure that what he thinks is going on it's exactly what's going on I appreciate when surgeons are really really thorough and I once we get the results of that test we will make the final final decision in scheduled surgery I'm guessing it's lack of meet until like mid late August or September because surgeons have to like be scheduled at the same day because it's gonna be a complicated thing how am I feeling about this I think I prefer not to feel anything about this I would really like it to fix the problem I really liked a blow-off again and if going through this a second time would allow that to be the case okay but the thought of going through all of this again is understandably really kind of terrifying yeah I don't think actually felt that until I said it in words on camera right now yeah it's really freaky going through the first time was really not a lot of fun if you look at the videos like way back at the beginning of my channel I usually had a couple minutes a day where I was doing okay but those first two months were really really really rough very painful very difficult upside is I'll know what to expect this time around regardless of which way they do I mean there is the chance that they still might do the other surgery but the recovery time is going to look pretty similar to if they just redid the whole amputation because of the stuff that they were gonna have to do because of the targeted muscle reinnervation think of saying that word right regardless I'm going to be casted for at least four weeks after surgery and yeah I'm gonna be down out for a while and I am just hoping against all hope or with all hope rather that this gets me to a place where I can look I am beyond ready for that I've talked about this before but getting this kind of news and like going through the stuff all that comes up in my head over and over and over and over again it's like other people have it worse it could be worse you shouldn't be upset about this but my leg is literally getting cut off again I went through one annotation thinking you would fix things like I let myself hope that might bring closure not closure but like the beginning of something it was going to be really freaking hard but I was told that six to eight weeks after my a mutation I'd be fitted for a prosthetic and learning to walk and I mean that'll happen but then it completely came to a halting stop and I have friends who are literally running 5ks on running blades who had their legs amputated and I cannot barely like where the I walk anymore because now my knee is messed up from walking on it so much and the end of my leg is really painful to touch even to like rub cream on to help and I'm frustrated one of the more challenging parts is I just got a new job and the job that I was working previously I just can't work I just cannot do it in the condition that I'm in I can't do it not being able walk consistently I can't do it at the kind of pain that I was in so I got a new job and I'm gonna have to take significant time off of that initially we planned for like three months of me being able to mostly take time off like mostly take work off which was a huge gift but things are not gone in that direction and continue not to sew all around things are shaky and scary and concerning and frightening and I hope things only forward to a better place at the same time I am a prisoner of hope and I fully trust that something will give that something will work out and I will work my ass off to make that happen whatever that is and I am unbelievably thankful to have you guys along with me I will keep you apprised on what is upcoming I don't know what's gonna happen as far as when it's gonna happen but I think it's gonna be a pretty intense recovery pretty rough fixes things it's totally worth it I'll go through whatever I need to go through that means that I can be in less pain and actually take some steps if I can actually walk yeah my leg is getting cut up a second time I'm having and of like amputated again that's weird that's bizarre I really hope it fixes the issue I just want like take a nap like the next eight weeks thanks for listening guys what a crazy journey this is I can't wait to look back on this video a year from now and see where things have gone if you do want to support me or this channel no pressure to do so a patreon link is down below that's all I'm gonna say on that I really appreciate everybody who is a member of my patreon you guys are amazing and so patient with me and really caring and I really appreciate your support there I love you all I am thinking of you daily and I will talk to you in the next video and I look forward to bringing you with me on this journey thanks guys [Applause]

  1. You are inspiring and so strong. I needed your hopefulness to get me through today. Iโ€™m going to be having my second rib removal surgery. Itโ€™s in 2 months and Iโ€™m having such hesitation about being down for so long again. 3+ months recovery time and it hurt so bad the first time. sending love and strength!

  2. Iโ€™m really happy that you can see the silver lining of how your residual limb is longer than usual. This whole situation really sucks but I can feel your determination and hope for your dream of a better quality of life!

    (Off topic question: Do you ever think that you would want to/ be able to do YouTube as a full time job? It would probably be easier to take your time to heal while also providing for your family. Idk I hope everything works out ๐Ÿคž)

  3. I am so sorry jo I hope things get better my day has been not great either I came down with a cold. ๐Ÿคง๐Ÿคฎ I also found out my sister has cancer of the throat she is most likely going to survive because they caught it early but it still sucks I hope your leg heals and gets better I will pray for you!!!

  4. You might want to explore attorneys. That sounds totally fucked up. I'm not a medical professional and, while not familiar with your specific circumstances, that just seems ….. I dont know. Fucked up is all that comes to mind. I hope for you only the best.

  5. Is that doctor crazy?! you really need to get your leg amputated?! :O :/(
    Remember that you are a huge WARRIOR OF LIFE!! You will win this battle as well as the others you have won!!
    Hug and blessings for you. ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Jo, you might be getting your leg amputated before I get a CONSULT to get my wisdom teeth removed. If that ain't wild…. anyways, best of luck Jo.

  7. I hope you had a chance to study the information in the www.Ertlreconstruction.com website. The Ertl procedure is considered to be a state of the art. Everything your current surgeon you have been consulting with has brought up to you what was pioneered by the Ertl family. Once what has been done, you should look into the biodesigns hifi socket interface. There is the YouTube biodesigns video channel that is worth your while to view.

  8. This can only be good news if it ends your pain. I sincerely hope this is the best path to regaining your life. My thoughts are with you and your family,

  9. This is really sad to hear.. I wish you all the best of luck and I hope this time the recovery will go quick and a lot more pain free! โค๏ธ Though itโ€™s nothing compared to getting you limb cut off, Iโ€™ve been through a major spinal surgery a couple of years ago and I so I think can understand some of your thought processes about will this help? Will it be better this time? Never stop fighting tho! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ Iโ€™m fighting with yah!

  10. All the very best, Jo. I am really looking forward to that video in which you tell us how great it is to be back running.

  11. Damn Jo, just…damn. That stinks. You are really going through the fire, just think how strong you're going to be when it's done.

  12. He, you act really good!!! Do more of that if you liked it, because I surely did ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ We'll stay by your side. I mean, it is still possible that this time it'll work out! Theoretically more possible than not. Goog good good good luck with keeping it together until then (and after) ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

  13. There's that silver lining or blessing in disguise … your amputated leg is longer than the norm thus giving them the extra to amputate and get right.

  14. Hamng in theregood luck and you have a lot of support, reach out sometimes a stranger is the best listeners.

  15. I am so so sorry to hear that you actually have to do a second amputation. I cannot even imagine how that must feel mentally just going into this. I hope it all goes well and that you have a good recovery. <3
