My MC has found himself on the wrong side of a torturer's hammer and loses a few toes as a result. Escapes at a hobble and all seems fine and dandy, until infection sets in. So, alone in the woods he must cut off his own foot.
1:Is this feasible? (I know, it was in SAW so it must be possible...) MC's got a high pain threshold, fire, and maybe even a bread knife if I'm feeling benevolent.
2:What are the actual steps for a backyard amputation?
3:Is there any way he could walk on crutches immediately afterwards?
