As an amputee, I know the confusion and feelings of helplessness that occur after an amputation. You may be feeling overwhelmed, angry, and a myriad of other emotions as a result of the amputation. Fortunately, a great deal of support is available today to amputees.
One great way to connect with other amputees is through a local support group, which you can find by visiting the Amputee Coalition. There are support groups available for many states. You can also receive support (including visits) from an amputee who has gone through something similar to you. You can learn more about peer support by clicking here. It is often helpful for an amputee’s emotional recovery process to participate in research. Not only does the research help others, but it can be emotionally healing for an amputee. Another helpful step to take is to seek professional advice, as well as therapy. Medical experts dealing with amputations can be identified here.
Amputees also often need legal advice. A lifetime of medical care for an amputee can be extremely expensive. In many cases, the amputation may have been caused by the negligence of another party. Another person’s negligence may have caused an accident. Medical malpractice may have led to the amputation. In those situations, it’s important that you contact an experienced attorney for help.
