Amputation

My girlfriend was recently involved in a serious car accident and lost her right leg. At first we were told she may not walk again but now the doctors are hopeful that she will. She is really depressed after losing her leg and doesn't want to go out where people can see her. Has anyone been through amputation? Will her feelings change with time? Is there anything I can do/say to help her?
