How does one cope with the loss of a leg in later life?
An elderly friend is about to have a leg amputated following years of problems and is obviously concerned about carrying on afterwards, particularly regarding mobility and toileting. He feels that he would be unlikely to have a prosthetic fitted. Does anyone elderly have any experience of this sort of thing that they would like share?
