If you get a leg or limb cut off can you still do the things you used to do?

It depends on what you want to do. If you get your hand cut off and you play the clarinet, it may be very difficult to continue to play the clarinet without some major modifications to the clarinet. But if you get your hand cut off and still want to swim, yes, you can still do that. If you get your hand cut off and you want to skydive, yes, you can still do that. Losing a leg/foot is often "easier" than losing a hand because of how much we use our fingers compared to how much we use our toes.

I dunno... How about you ask that soldier who got both his legs blown off in Iraq, and has gone on to take several black-belt-level Forms and Breaking awards on a pair of super-customized prosthetic legs?
