Above Knee (Knee Disarticulation) Amputee Podcast with guest Dave Gibson

In the latest episode of the “We’re Not Stumped” podcast, the spotlight is on Dave Gibson, an inspiring individual living in Arizona who shares his powerful story of resilience and humor in the face of life’s daunting challenges. Dave was born and raised in Southern California and moved to Arizona in the spring of 2004. He loves riding motorcycles, playing hockey, and being introduced to anything new. Dave’s journey is marked by a series of life-altering events, beginning with a severe motorcycle accident that led to the loss of his left leg. This traumatic incident could have easily defined his life, but Dave chose a different path.

Despite the physical and emotional hurdles of limb loss, Dave’s indomitable spirit shines through. He continues to ride his motorcycle, a testament to his determination and love for life on the road. Riding isn’t just a hobby for Dave; it’s a symbol of his refusal to be confined by his circumstances.

However, Dave’s journey doesn’t end there. He also candidly discusses surviving two strokes, which added another layer of complexity to his life. These strokes left him with a speech quality that he humorously likens to sounding “like I’ve had a bit to drink.” Yet, this change hasn’t dimmed his zest for life or his ability to bring joy to those around him. Instead, Dave embraces his unique voice and continues to engage with the world around him, often bringing laughter to his friends and family.

Throughout the podcast, Dave opens up about the challenges he has faced, offering an honest and heartfelt look at his journey. From the initial shock of his accident and strokes to the daily struggles and triumphs of living as an amputee, he provides valuable insights and encouragement for others facing similar obstacles.

Listeners of “We’re Not Stumped” will find Dave’s story both moving and uplifting. His experiences highlight not only the physical and mental battles that come with severe medical issues but also the incredible resilience of the human spirit. Dave Gibson’s journey is a testament to the power of perseverance and the importance of maintaining a sense of humor, even in the toughest times.
