Recovery after an Amputation as a Result of a Georgia Accident

If you have suffered an amputation as a result of a Georgia accident, you may likely face physical and emotional challenges. Rehabilitation can be lengthy, not to mention costly. To offset this burden, a Macon personal injury attorney will work hard to help you fight for the compensation you deserve to pay for your medical expenses.

The recovery process will depend on the type of amputation that is performed. After surgery, it will be necessary to undergo rehabilitation to help gain as much functionality as possible.

In some situations, a patient may benefit from a prosthetic device.
The patient will have to be fitted for one and will need to learn how it works. This will include daily conditioning exercises.

Before a prosthesis can be worn, the amputated area must be conditioned. This requires wearing elastic bandages day and night, in order to prevent swelling and fluid retention. In addition, conditioning helps give some shape to the area.

If the amputation occurred to a leg, conditioning may require learning how to balance and walk with a prosthetic device.
There is also the challenge of learning how to maneuver stairs. This type of rehabilitation will be especially lengthy if the individual was confined to a bed or relied on a wheelchair for a long period of time.
