I know there are several questions on the stack about how long Anakin survived on Mustafar, or how does Vader's suit help keep him alive.
But I am wondering, considering that wounds from a lightsaber are almost immediately cauterized, and Anakin already had survived losing one limb, could he have been able to live outside of the Vader suit if he had not been engulfed in flames?
To me it has always seemed like this was what really sealed his fate as far as the full disfigurement and the inability to live without constant life support of his suit.
So if he had not been burned, would this have changed anything for Anakin?
I mean he would still would have needed prosthetics, but would he have been able to move and live without the constant life support?
