Is There Life After an Amputation?
Whether you’re a first time visitor or you have come back after previous visits, you should know that Pain Pump is always here to help. I continue to bring you information on how to overcome pain and use it to turn your life in a positive direction.
Today’s post was inspired by a conversation I had with a Toronto car accident lawyer who was working with a client who had lost a leg in a car accident. The attorney was in awe over how that individual did not let an amputation end their life. They pushed through and came out the other end stronger and dedicated to living a full life.
What Is an Amputation?
For those who don’t know, an amputation is when a limb is lost for some reason. Sometimes, a limb can be lost in a traumatic event such as a car accident. No matter what causes the loss of a limb, the person will probably struggle over the gravity of the loss.
Some people let the loss drag them down to a dark place. They might have difficulty climbing back out of that dark place.
Overcoming Your Amputation
The first thing you need to know: an amputation is not the end of your life. Thanks to modern technology, amputees are living fuller lives than ever before. Some live full lives with double amputations. It’s all about your perspective.
Yes, an amputation is a great loss. You should mourn that loss just like you would any other loss in your life. After the mourning period is over, you need to work on finding a positive outlook. If you can remain positive and look to your future, you can overcome your amputation.
Steps to Help You Overcome an Amputation
I’m no therapist or physical therapist, so these are only a few suggestions. First, you should focus on healing. It’s important you give your body time to heal fully so that you can have a bright future. Listen to your doctor’s advice on how to overcome your physical and mental wounds.
Once you’ve healed physically, work on yourself. Find ways to fill your life. Find ways to cope with your amputation. There are many devices that can aid in mobility. Find the one that works for you, and go out and live your life.
