Like any type of operation, an amputation carries a risk of additional problems directly related to the loss of a limb.
Recovery after amputation is a long journey and can often feel lonely. Prosthetic rehabilitation can help restore your independence, however it can be a frustrating process.
Prosthetics have many benefits such as increased mobility, improved appearance, more functionality and independence, as well as reduction of phantom leg pain. Nevertheless it is important to ensure that advice on prosthetic limbs is specific for your body and your needs as there are also disadvantages associated with having a prosthetic fitted such as skin irritation and discomfort, joint and tendon problems and also fatigue.
A successful amputation compensation claim can make a significant difference to your future life, therefore it is important to speak to a specialist as soon as possible who understands your case and the impact your accident has on your life.

An amputation often follows from a traumatic experience, especially if it was caused by an accident due to someone else’s negligence. Many amputees suffer from PTSD, which could include panic attacks and flashbacks during the day, or nightmares that affect the quality and quantity of their sleep, and it is important to get professional help for your mental health too.
About 30% of amputees are troubled by depression. Decreased self-esteem, distorted body image, flashbacks and PTSD, increased dependency, and social isolation are also common following an amputation.
It shouldn’t be forgotten that when a person loses a limb, the people who are close to them are also impacted. Relationships change and family members can struggle too, especially if they have to suddenly take on the role of primary caregiver. It is important for the whole family to get support from a mental health counsellor or professional.
