(This is in the hypothetical, I should say)
So, say my arm gets sliced through, from between my middle and ring fingers, all the way to my elbow. Now, assuming I get prompt enough medical attention and I don’t bleed to death, how much is medical science going to be able to do for my arm? Am I definately going to lose it, or is there any chance of regaining any useful function with the limb and hand—and if so, how much?
Granted, I imagine a vague hypothetical injury probably isn’t the best thing to base concrete medical opinion. But I’m just looking for a “ballpark estimate.”
