Dozens of people were seriously injured in last week's bombing of the Boston Marathon, many of them losing limbs. For them, the battle is just beginning.
FOX's Colleen Cappon has more on their challenges ahead in today's "Housecall for Health":
Those who faced amputations after the Boston attack may find the psychological adjustment just as difficult as the physical one. In addition to phantom limb - the sensation a limb is still attached and functional - directors at the Amputee Coalition say many patients experience PTSD throughout rehab, and now is a crucial time because shock is wearing off and reality is setting in.
Experts say talking with a fellow amputee is often the best way to heal.
