Keep using the crutch as long as you are still struggling. If you transition too quickly you run the risk of developing a chronic limp.I am flying on one crutch atm but still struggling
Sorry but this is ! Everyone reaches different milestones by 6 weeks. Yes, maybe your friend was swimming and driving. I drove at 6 weeks post LTHR and at 4 weeks post RTHR. I am sure your surgeon will release you to drive on Friday. And if your wound is totally healed they will probably release you to swim. We do have members who run (and do marathons), but you might want to wait awhile to face that challenge.after 6 weeks ( that’s me now. ) he was driving , swimming, entering marathons,tour de France (ok but) post his replacement.
I love this quote and we thank you for mentioning BoneSmart. Even more so I love your use of the word “our” forum, as it is ours collectively and it’s wonderful to read you expressing that.Of course I mentioned Bonesmart and she was pleasantly encouraging about following about the superb advice and encouragement I receive through our brilliant forum.
I appreciated reading this. Went to the store yesterday and it hurts walking from the parking lot. I’ve been working on my step length and it hurts. I’m going to back off for now.. If a long full step right now is causing pain and limping, don't take long full steps. Take smaller steps.
