Context: fantasy novel in which a key character had just suffered massive burns on her legs and genitals in battle. (it was a mage-fire, conjured by my antag, an extremely powerful mage) My character's been rushed away to get treatment. Technology level is kinda like the middle ages, with some magic floating about. 1. What would be the first few basic things any doctor would do to stabilize her condition? And what sort of treatment would come after that? 2. What are some complications that the doctor might see as a likely consequence? 3. Can severe burns on the legs render someone disabled? Would her walking, balance, perhaps sexual function and/or bladder/bowel movements be affected? If yes, then to what extent? Will she ever naturally recover all her functions? 4. What sort of disfigurement are we talking about? 5. How long before she can realistic get up and be independent again? How long before she is fit for battle? This is a relatively brief part in my novel (1-2 scenes max before she probably gets healed completely by magic), but I'm trying to write a realistic aftermath to the attack. @GingerCoffee tagging you because I seem to remember you're a nurse practitioner.
