Amputation And Artificial Limb by gonkin(m): 6:52pm On Dec 15, 2022
Good evening

Ive been sad all day since i learnt a close friend was involved in car and bike accident. It was so severe that her leg had to be amputated from the femur down. She's about 8 months pregnant and ive been having a migraine due to excess tears running down my cheek.

My question is that after her heals from the cut, can she use artificial limb and is it expensive. Will she be able to walk a lil normal?

Cuz she's a lil bit on the chubby size

Yes, it's very expensive.

That her weight will really affect her, it will be painful because her weight will be relying on the remaining leg. And you know it's the leg that does the most work amongst all body parts.

Very unfortunate.
HBOT would have helped to retain her limb even if it was badly damaged and hanging by a thread of flesh.

HBOT would have restored blood flow to prevent tissue death.
Later broken bones can be fixed.

There is always a rush to amputate to save time and life Let's stop to amputate for the slightest reason because with hbot 75% of limbs can be salvaged.
