Off topic, but I read a story recently about the current season of the Bachelor. One of the ladies is a partial amputee...at birth, they had to amputate her left arm just above the elbow. She’s very attractive, accomplished. I’m wondering why she doesn’t have a prosthetic device. They are remarkable. Same thing for the girl surfer who had her arm bitten off by a shark. She’s made a remarkable comeback. Is there a certain community of those who have lost limbs who don’t want artificial ones?
Some folks...particularly those born without limbs, or who lost them at a very young age, tend to adapt to not having that limb, and generally function better without a prosthetic in some cases! Others just find the prosthetic too cumbersome, or too difficult to get used to, or are simply content with what they have (or don’t have)..
