Causes of amputation

Causes such as cancer or accidents can cause mutilation of a body member. But diabetes also remains a major factor. And according to Mayoclinic, the complications of diabetes can cause nerve damage and inadequate blood circulation that can worsen the ulcers that result.

Factors that increase the risk of amputation in diabetes are as follows:
  • High blood sugar level
  • Smoking
  • Foot ulcer
  • Kidney disease
  • Hypertension
  • Nerve injury of the feet
  • Poor blood circulation
  • Deformed feet

Also, good diabetes management is required. To do this, you must adopt a healthy diet, combined with regular physical exercise and opt for blood glucose monitoring and strict medical monitoring. It is also important to closely monitor the feet, inspecting them daily for abnormalities, washing and drying them well, wearing quality shoes and clean socks made of fiber, and avoiding smoking.

Psychological impact of a removal of a body member
In our present-day society, where appearance is more important than being, an amputated limb is both a physical and emotional injury, having a considerable psychological impact; in most cases this results in an inferiority complex, a depressive and anxious state.

Thus, the patient is in a continuing fear of physical decay. Even the slightest mutilation of a limb represents for the person concerned a loss of body integrity that could be similar to the loss of a loved one, as Dagmar Gail, founder and president of the initiative for people, points out. amputees in Germany. Amputation is an oppressive and destructive procedure and before each operation, surgeons must be able to have sufficient knowledge, if possible, of the subsequent prosthetic restoration that will follow this operation, to say the least disabling.

The patient's attitude to amputation
When the mutilation of a member of the body is necessary for the improvement and the stability of the state of health of the patient, it is important that the patient is prepared for this operation and that he participates in the steps of this process. According to Dr. Thomas Bröni, medical consultant at the Zurich Medical School, it is important to get in touch with people who have had the same painful experience and to receive psychological support that could reassure and put the patient at ease.

After the operation, patients often experience physical pain before becoming aware of the loss of mobility they will experience due to amputation. With time and with psychological support, the patient finally accepts his condition. This psychological recovery will be all the more rapid if the patient's relatives accept his current state, which could be reflected in his self-esteem.
