I am a below knee amputee using prosthesis. Some time my back portion of stump starts burning and on further use of prothesis it develope to blister.

Prosthetic fit

Prosthesis
These are common signs of an ill fitting prosthesis. The residual limb after an amputation often changes shape and the prosthetic socket needs to be modified or replaced.. contact your prosthetist or physical rehabilitation physician for evaluation. Once the possibility of an ill fitting prosthesis is determined your physician can investigate other possible causes.

my sisters legs have been swelling badly ,from her feet to her knees and they double their size is there some that could be before she goes to the dr?

Elevate her legs

Feet
You can eleavate her legs when she sits. Also she can get TenT stockings from a medical supply store. These stockings are very tight and will help decrease her swelling. However it sounds as though you should see your doctor soon so he/she can discover the cause of the immense swelling and treat it medically.

is a diabetic double amputee overweight a good candidate for prosthetic limbs?

Depends

Overweight
The level of amputation is most important as the higher the amputation the more difficult it is to walk with the prosthesis. Diabetes by itself is not a problem if controlled. Foot care is crucial to prevent amputation of the other leg. Weight might limit the options an amputee has as prosthetic components have weight limits. Inability to tolerate exercise is another limiting factor.
