Got hit by a car and shattered both legs. Doctors say its in my best interest to amputate. Im scared af but leaning towards just getting it done.

What do?
>>
give us a time stamp
>>
>>736623646
Explain more about the injuries and possible outcomes? I'm all for pragmatism but omg losing both legs completely is a LOT.

Maybe second or even third opinions?
>>
>>736623646
LOL FAGGOT

dont do it, even if ur legs end up not functional you'd still look better in a wheelchair with two non working legs than two stumps

If I had both of my legs/arms amputated I would an hero...

Don't amputate unless they are badly infected or something along those lines. There is always a chance of walking again
>>
>>736623918
he'd get prosthetic legs...

how far up would they amputate anon? I think with modern day medicine and hardware you would live a pretty good life with prosthetics man

>>736623646
Don't do it op, doctor just doesn't want to deal with you and tells you that bs

Ok being a cyborg is possible but it's so expensive.

pros : can stay up 24/7 so OP will be better at work than others

are you gonna get any money from the accident?
>>
OP, from the guys I've met at the VA hospital who had horrible shattered/mangled legs, it really is best to just amputate it, beyond a certain point.

You'll see guys who spend a year trying to keep their leg, and they can barely walk and they are in such horrible pain each step. Their ankles will be basically frozen.

Meanwhile, the guys with artificial legs will outside jogging.
>>
>>736623646
fuck that shit OP, if there's a chance to keeping them, i'd go for it, you can always have them removed later if it doesn't work out, you can't go back once they take them off. also phantom limb is a scary ass thing, to always feel pain in your non-existent limb, fuck that shit too.

Completely shattered both tibs and fibs. Plates and screws all throughout. Artificial knee caps. Ligaments, muscles and tendons are fucked and require more surgeries. Rods in both femurs.

They said either way Im going to be in a wheelchair for life but with the amputations Ill be rid of the severe pain and wont require any more surgeries.

>>736624067
Mid thigh

>>736624254
Thats what they said. Im 95% commited to doing it already. Ive got an appiontment with the surgeon tomorrow to set a date. Just having second thoughts.

Doctors told my father to amputate his arm due to shoulder shattering.
He said hell no.
Arm still works today, with limited movement.

But it is your call.
Having your legs will put you throught a lot of work, actually.
You will have to train your legs. Daily.
You will have to follow medical rules AND break them.
You will feel pain (but you will also feel it if you amputate.)

My opinion is: doctors tell you to amputate because it shortens their work.
Simple as that.
>>
>>736623646

Serious question OP, is your dick still functional?
>>
>>736624734
Get another opinion. If the legs are repairable you better off suffer a year or two of surgeries than lose them completely. Trust even if legs of little use is better than none at all.
>>
>>736624915
Samefagging here.
I had not considered the use of prosthetics, since my father would have to amputate his entire arm.
But with leg prosthetics things might change a lot.

VA worker here (not a doctor). Well shit man, if they're just going to take your legs up to mid-thigh, maybe you should hang on for now. Ask if it possible to at least get use of your knees back, possibly in just one leg even. That ups your chances of being able to walk on prosthetic legs.

But if it's really too far gone, then I'd rather have some useless hunks of meat amputated so I can move around easier, like getting in and out of bed, etc. without dragging that dead weight around.

" At times we even feel sorry for individuals who have a disability because we assume that the person must be unhappy or depressed because of their limitations. We have got this all wrong. The “disability paradox” suggests that many individuals with disabilities report that they experience an excellent quality of life when, to most people, they seem to live an undesirable daily existence (Albrecht & Devilieger, 1999) "

You're gonna be fine, OP.

As long as your cock works you'll be fine. Have them taken off, work out heaps, get fake ones, you'll be fine!

>>736625115
Ive been dealing with this for nearly 6 months already. Gotten three opinions and all advise amputating would provide me the best quality of life. As it stands Id be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life either way. Keeping my legs would mean more and more surgeries and constant. But with the amputations I would be rid of the pain, surgeries and dead weight.

>>736623646
Don't amputate. When there's a will there's a way. Think of the money you will get from your feel good Netflix original documentary when you regain full function in your legs

Considering everything you've said, amputate.
Afterwards work out, and i mean REALLY work out, hard, every single day.
Then get prosthetics.
You'll be fine, just remember to work out, becoming a fat piece of shit on a wheelchair will be your worst enemy after the surgery.

You should try to find out if your knees and your femur are ok, or if, at least, they are recoverable.

Hold up on the amputation for now, you can always do that later if it comes to it. Check this out, do some research, talk to the doctor about this, and call up the clinic in Gig Harbor Washington https://youtu.be/dlqel7udvEI

oh good, a teenaged libertarian has an opinion on leg amputation

>>736627473
>they worked fine after 3 months.
Then your brother's arm was broken, not shattered. Having two or 3 clean breaks in an arm doesn't mean shattered.

shattered is just obliterated, bone fragments everywhere, a ton of pins holding everything together. Possible destroyed joints, etc.

>>736628107

>>736630953
I mean, it's not something really that important if it's not true, but it's kind of insensitive to demand proof if it's actually true. So it's not really worth it, I think.

I say that because I also have a shitty condition, and some days I just want to talk to people without necessarily having to prove every single time how fucked up I am. The guy probably just wants some company or something.
>>
>>736631567
I mean, why would you go on an anonymous board notorious for its toxicity and expect anything other than toxicity?

Do everything you can to save the legs (within reason/without major debt). If you can save your knees, fucking do it. Make sure your doctors do everything to make prosthetics a possibility.

Prosthetics are coming along nicely. Keep in shape OP, becoming a depressed, fat, wheel-chair-ridden POS is the last thing you wanna do. Best of luck, god speed, and I hope you can at least save your knees!

I was in writhing agony for 6 months. Hes still my friend, i didn't want to press charges but my parents did. Strangest thing was the party was my engagement party with his sister. I was only about a 3 hour ambulance drive to one of the most skilled srs surgeons so when i went to the er the dr on call said i could have just a pee hole or try to have some kind of sexual pleasure so thats when i opted for the surgury. Fiancee left me because of it.

Hi OP, nurse fag here, I think you're making right choice. Not in orthopedics, but I know there's only so much they can do with surgery to correct the damage. Besides the pain and assuming you'll be able to walk, you're looking at several surgeries throughout your life. Prosthetic joints and such west, as do screws and plates, not to mention if any sort of infection sets in. I can tell you the doctors hate giving that advice, but they do have your best interests in mind.

I work in the ED, and had a patient the other day with a prosthetic knee due to injury from parachute jumps when he was in the Army. He told me he's had 7 surgeries and replaced the knee prosthesis 3 times over the years, and that's just one knee.

Don't feel too bad, it could be much worse. There are lots of support groups that can help if you feel bad or self conscious about it. Mental health is as important as physical. You can bounce back and be happy.

Gurrrrl he gon' kill you. Probably did it to stop you marrying his sister either for her or himself. Doesn't matter. Probably knew he'd get away with it too if it looked like a drunken accident. Also, since it'd be a waste for you not to, more nudes?

Obviously he's going to think he caused you to transition and he's going to think he messed you up.
I guess comfort him and tell him it's not so bad?

Would you agree that he sort of "caused" you to feel you needed to transition since you didn't want to transition before the m80 in your pants incidence?

She's right.

[spoiler]It's rare to get good advice from /b/, but it's nice to know there are still some people with a sense of community here and not just the edgy kids with the "hurr durr kys".[/spoiler]
