Have you seen the ads for the new walkers that allow you to walk upright? Why didn't they come up with this years ago?! I think these would be such a benefit in our total recovery. I, too, found walking with the walker hurt my back even though I had the handles all the way up. I'm 5'6", and that's not that tall. For someone taller it'd be that much more uncomfortable. BTW, I looked up the advertised one and they're over $1000. Ridiculous!Now I have to work on strengthening my lower back so I stand upright when I walk.
Before I had my revision, I had to have a stress test. On the report it said I had a previous MI but the stress test was normal! My cardiologist that looks after my AFIB said the leads were misplaced and I did not have a MI because the stress test was normal. I had the cardiologist that read the report virtually go back and correct it!!!. It turned out there had been an error on the stress test machine and his heart was actually fine. (the reason for the stress test in the first place was ridiculous). So, we were scared for nothing.
