Hello and welcome to my website and blog for LIMB LOSS LIFE. My name is Jeffrey A. Mangus and I am an amputee. I lost my leg Below the Knee (BKA) in December 2017. This was one of the scariest times of my life and a seed was planted to write a book that would help others overcome and adapt to a new life as an amputee.
My new book LIMB LOSS LIFE addresses every issue you as an amputee will face. This book does not hold back. It is a straight-up need-to-know guide on the first days, weeks, months and years as an amputee. This book is one of the most heart-driven pieces of work I have ever written. It was extremely difficult to write this book. I cried. I paced. And I struggled because it forced me to dig down to face my early ongoing fears and anxieties. I knew, to write this book completely, that I had to go through dark and to reach the light. I knew I would have to face emotions that were lying deep down. They had to be dug up, strangled and wrestled into submission to get through it the right way for you my reader. And I did.
