    Kedar-
    You might try looking at a website for amputees. They would have more suggestions for people who have had an amputation.

    If you are looking for a more energy efficient method to get around- it might be a wheelchair. However, I am not sure how high up your amputation was and given your age, there are probably many different options for artifical limbs.

    Unfortunately, I am not an expert on amputations- however I will try to find someone who can give you some websites that may help.
