how would removing bones effect the body?

for example, if you had the bones in your legs removed (femur, tibia, fibula) and that was it, nothing else done, just cut open bones removed then stitched back up, other than no longer being able to move your legs, what effects on your body would there be?

    Apart from the physical effects, your immune system would be seriously degraded, because white blood cells are formed within bone marrow. No bones, means no marrow, means no white blood cells.

    Just like the other guy said, you would flop around ha. You'd still have some muscle control but as ligaments and tendons can connect to bones... most wouldn't work. Might be able to wiggle a toe or two and some slight ankle switching but otherwise your legs would be fairly useless. Your bones are your support and stability so without them your legs would be pretty useless. It would probably affect your helps as well since the femurs create a joint with them.

    You would flop around a lot.
