I never suggested that you

I never suggested that you couldn't survive an explosive amputation. However, I am suggesting that you could not survive an explosive amputation of both legs, then be wheeled down the street without losing a drop of blood behind you.

Further, it's entirely possible for blast damage to mangle your limbs but NOT sever arteries, which would keep you from bleeding out. Doctors would then amputate the limbs surgically afterwards if they were damaged beyond repair.
