I was on a walker for the first week... I feel crutches would have been challenging, especially for balance with all the meds, but know a lot of people use them.
Many do initially sleep in a recliner. I slept in mine for three full weeks. I agree with FCBayern (above) that you should be sleeping in bed only when you feel comfortable and ready to sleep in your bed.Are recliners the typical ‘go to’ for initial sleeping?
