Bachelor Nation Cam Ayala is making a speedy recovery from leg amputation surgery with the support of loved ones.
Last week, the 33-year-old native of Austin, Texas, had his right leg amputated after a lifelong battle with lymphedema, an incurable disease in which fluid builds up in the body’s soft tissues and causes swelling in the limbs.

“Day 3 in the life of an #amputee featuring some of my days 1 from @tamu to Fort Worth to ATX to HTown to @thestoryhouston,” Ayala continued Post from June 25th. “#FaithOverFear #CAMputee #CAMputation #ToGodBeTheGlory #Lymphedema #Friends #Family”
