Approximately 5,000-6,000 major amputations take place each year. 70% of the lower limb amputations occur due to restricted blood flow often caused by diabetes. 57% of upper limb amputations are caused by trauma, such as a crushing injury or blast wound.
Adapting to life after an amputation can be hard and can also depend upon your age, how much of the limb was removed, how well you cope emotionally and psychologically, and any other underlying conditions you may have.
People who suffer from amputations often report feeling emotions such as grief and bereavement, similar to the loss of a loved one.
