What a great website! I really feel a connection to everyone posting! I had a RTHP three weeks ago. I can put full weight on it already which is great considering I was in a wheelchair before the surgery. Has anyone experienced shoulder and neck pain from using crutches? I need them to navigate the stairs in my house and even though I try not to put too much pressure on my upper body, my neck and upper shoulders remain stiff and painful. My sleeping position is not ideal either. I can only lie on my back or left side with a foam wedge between my legs. My wrists are sore too. Any ideas from anyone?
