Whether it is the result of trauma, illness, or a military injury, the loss of a limb is emotionally and physically challenging right after surgery and for years afterward. Amputees often must relearn essential life skills, manage pain and discomfort, and cope with grief over the lost limb. Although the ongoing emotional effects of an amputation vary, the immediate and lifetime physical challenges are similar for most patients.
Though each patient experiences a different path to recovery, every amputee faces some common challenges. This e-book provides valuable information for amputees who have recently undergone surgery and for those already living with prosthetic limbs.
