Limb reconstruction is a long, drawn-out process that can last over a year and it can be another year before you start to feel the real benefits. However, it can heal fractures that have stubbornly refused to respond to other treatment and help limb deformities, so vastly improving your mobility.
Successful limb reconstruction surgery can really feel like a miracle cure but it is not an easy choice. People going through this surgery often have severe emotional, physical, financial and practical problems. A very few patients conclude that this arduous prolonged treatment is not for them and make the difficult decision to have an amputation.
