While sweating may always be an issue, following these tips can significantly improve comfort. Be vigilant about hygiene, ventilation, and moisture-wicking choices. Work closely with your prosthetist to optimize fit and suspension. Staying dry reduces irritation and allows you to focus on function.
Recovering from amputation surgery is a long journey, unfolding one day at a time. While regaining amputation mobility may take months of healing, prosthetic rehabilitation, and practice, many people thrive after limb loss.
The fear of falling is pervasive after losing a limb. However, amputees can conquer this fear through gait training, balance aids, targeted exercise, and patient perseverance. Regaining confidence and stability takes commitment, but it is worth the effort to reclaim mobility independence. With the right support and training, amputees can walk steadily again and transform their lives after amputation.
