welcome. Sorry I can't offer any advice on this, but hopefully other list members will.
You might also like to try the Amputee list, run from St John's uni, as it has a much bigger membership.

Subject: toe amputation
I'm new to this list and am not quite sure that I
understand how it works but will give it a try.
Thank you for your patience with me.
I have a friend who lost two toes and the outside
of his left foot in a motorcycle accident the end
of April this year. He had severe damage to his
left arm as well. The pain and discomfort have
been taxing but he is doing pretty good under the
circumstances. The current situation is this: The
doctors are advising that the other toes be
removed due to damage of the bones but at this
time have left the decision up to him. No
confirmed word on any more of the foot itself
being removed. Because of a lack of
information, this decision is understandably
difficult to make. If anyone has insight pertaining
to this type of amputation, your input would be
greatly appreciated. (healing, walking, gait,
prostheses, pros/cons, ect.) He wants to be able
to ride a motorcycle again so information on
modifying a bike would be helpful also.
