It's a shame you didn't explain in detail about the condition of your feet, but we will try to provide information based on your information.
Amputation is a medical procedure in which a surgical procedure is performed to remove one part of the body (legs, hands, fingers). This action is not necessarily done arbitrarily. To perform an amputation procedure, the advantages and disadvantages of amputation will be carefully considered from the condition of the body part to be amputated to the welfare and safety of the patient's life.
Amputation is usually aimed at one part of the body (generally the limbs, namely the hands and feet or parts of the hands and feet) which has severe tissue death (in cases of gangrene due to hypothermia, diabetic ulcers, severe infections, tissue rupture) and can no longer be maintained or treated with existing medication, or also carried out if the condition of the part experiencing tissue death will pose a danger to the overall condition of the patient such as severe infection or death.
Reading your information does not say that your condition requires amputation, but of course the doctor who examines you is the one who best understands your condition.
Knee dislocations can generally be treated with surgery, physiotherapy, knee joint replacement or other measures. However, to know the condition of your feet carefully, the doctor who examines you is the one who understands the best.
Do a consultation with an orthopedic (bone) specialist, do physiotherapy carefully and don't give up hope. Avoid by weight, keep body balance and knee condition with special support or cast, cold compress if it hurts.
I hope this helps.
