Effects of an Amputation Injury
After an arm or leg amputation, patients can suffer problems with mobility and caring for themselves because of the loss of a limb. Many people with amputation injuries experience phantom limb symptoms, where they feel pain, numbness, itching, aching or other symptoms in the absent limb. Sometimes patients have unexplained symptoms in an unrelated body part such as unexplained pressure or movement on the face or head. Patients with amputations can also encounter skin problems and ulcers in their stumps that may require further surgery or other treatment to address skin issues.
In most cases, use of a prosthesis (artificial limb) can improve patients' mobility and overall function. A prosthesis, however, requires ongoing maintenance and will need to be replaced frequently. In addition to the added expense of maintenance and replacement, prosthetics require ongoing evaluations by a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician. When a leg amputation is involved, a patient may have problems with walking or driving that may require other adaptive devices like wheelchairs and modifications to their vehicles that can be expensive over time.
