What a lot of people do, especially if you get a snakebite, is to make a really tight knot around your arm, so the infected blood can't flow to the rest of your body. If Lee used anything to tie a knot around his elbow, he would have a little more time.
It does not make a difference if you amputate, if the bite is more than skin deep he is dead, we just got to remember everyone is already infected (Hence the walking dead are the people not the zombies) . Maybe the bite is just a catylst to activating the virus.
