I watched “Lonesome Dove” for the past three nights. I love that movie. Probably the best western of all time. But I have a question.
Why did the infection move to the other leg so the doc would have to amputate both legs instead of the one that got hit by the arrows?
I mean how did the infection move like that instead say like to his middle leg or his arms etc?
Also when they amputated legs back then how did they stop the bleeding? Did they pinch the veins or was using bandaged enough?
