I live in a condo complex at the top of what is a fairly steep hill. The kind you can't get up in the winter because its too slick. I'm trying to think about what my best option would be for mobility aids after surgery. There is a flat, level area at the end of our unit, but that will require me pushing a walker uphill past 3 units. And then back downhill to get home. I will have my hubby with me. Or, I could go out the back into our backyard but that's a bumpy, grassy area and not really conducive to pushing a walker. Would crutches be better? I also own a treadmill... But the belt slips from time to time. I'm not entirely comfortable walking on it when I haven't had major surgery. So I'm not sure it's the best option either. Opinions?
