That will depend on if you are substantially unable to do work related tasks required in all occupations - based on the leg and any other medical/mental impairments. If you have a prosthetic that allows you to walk and be on your feet to a reasonable amount of time, such as 2 hours a day, and you can sit the other 6, with normal work breaks in between, getting disability may be unlikely. But if you can't do these things full time, it is possible, particularly if you have additional medical impairments. If you want to go over your situation with an attorney phone consult, I'll ask that be offered - totally optional!
