I have to agree with Tony on this one. While this is a rumor that has been
around for as long as I have, there are equally as many cases where this
does not hold true as those where it does hold true. There has been no

There are many amps that had no previous problems with their limbs that
suffer tremendous phantom pain after amputation, likewise, there are many
who have had extremely painful limbs removed, who suffer almost no phantom
It sounds good, but it just isn't true.
