Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that both of your legs were severely infected due to the open wound that you had. The multiple surgeries that you had must have been done to fight the infection. A clinical assessment and complete medical history is needed to discuss the prognosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
