In brief: Hopefully none...

Aside from the physical limitations; hopefully the "public" is understanding.
There are prosthetics; etc for the physicality of the handedness which your doctor should be discussing with you.

In brief: Few

I think you mean problems outside of the house.
.. If that is the case problems would only be present for tasks that absolutely require both hands. A prosthetic can help depending on the task. People with hand amputations learn to do most activities independently.

In brief: Depends

You will not have a disability "problem".
You may face a discrimination problem depending on how you present yourself and who you are dealing with. People can be ignorant, or just curious, but this is not disabling for your role in the community. Look to contribute. How you relate to others, work, drive and raise children will inspire others to respect your physical challenges.
