amputation questions - please help
I have a couple questions for anyone who can help. I was in a doozy of a car accident in May, 2002, and it looks like I'm gonna lose my left leg in January as a result of lousy healing. My main question is: If it's an above-the-knee cut, how long before I can go back to work? I sit down for a living - I'm a psychologist. Being a psychologist isn't helping AT ALL in terms of NOT PANICKING but I'll spare ya for now n stick to the practical questions.
So, what do you guys think, when would I physically be able to go back to work? Best case scenario please.
I'm also worried about how my daughter (almost 4) is gonna react. I had a cast earlier this year and she was scared of it, so God only knows what she'll think if the leg isn't there at all.
Advice and reassurance much appreciated. ( REMOVED ) I'm scared to death, here.
