I'm asking, as I'm writing a small story about an amputee and I would like to know as much as possible as to not offend anyone! Also, what is the rehabilitation like? Thank you so much, I truly appreciate your help in this!
I have a friend that's an amputee, and he says he felt strange for a while. Missing a partial limb is the weirdest feeling that's hard to explain. Sometimes, it feels like it's still there, and he'll get "ghost limb", or feel an itch there, but there's nothing there to make it itch.
Dealing and learning to live without the use of all limbs equally takes months or even years to adjust. Depending on the age of the person, they may never fully adjust.
