I think that your analogy here is flawed because a person with a prosthetic would be separated from the service. Any situation where a person is unable to do their job due to a disability should be treated in the same manner. In the military though, they can be much less forgiving and less into giving reasonable accommodations because they can state that certain things are "bona fide occupational requirements" when a civilian job couldn't say that.
If you believe that they are being intentionally harder on you than they need to be, file an EEO complaint. Otherwise, if you agree that you can't perform to the level they feel you should, you can request that you be considered for a Medical Evaluation Board.
