JP Norden is recovering from another surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
The Stoneham native was severely injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. He and his brother, Paul, were watching the race near Forum Restaurant on Boylston Street when the second of the two explosions occurred — each brother lost a leg.
His mother, Liz Norden, told Boston.com JP’s prosthetic has been causing him pain and the aim of this week’s three-hour surgery was to make the device more “bearable’’ for him to wear. Following the surgery, she said he is in pain, “but otherwise doing OK.’’
“2 years and 9 months after the marathon bombing issues continue…traumatic blast injuries on amputees can cause complications for years we’ve learned,’’ the post said.
Liz Norden said JP will be back in his wheelchair and off his leg for about six to eight weeks.
