Short stay: As long as there are no complications from the surgery & you are medically stable it should be 2-3 days.

7-10 days: Typically, and depending on your condition after surgery, 7-10 days. The average is around 7 days. Again, depends on the level of amputation and your associated medical conditions before surgery.
