    Vicky & Ronke: Traumatic Amputation

    Vicky & Ronke: Traumatic Amputation

    Myleene Klass talks to two women who both had a leg amputated after traumatic road collisions. Vicky and Ronke discuss their relationships with their new bodies, how loved ones and stunned strangers make them feel about their prosthetic limbs, and why re-living their accidents through the insurance claim process is so distressing.
    DISCLAIMER: In this episode the word ‘accident’ is used a number of times. In Vicky and Ronke’s cases we should be calling them ‘crashes’ or collisions’, as they were preventable incidents. Find out more about why the language we use is so important.
