Many of us had no one with us after this surgery and, with planning, we made out just fine. The main thing is to stay safe and that includes using that walker as long as you feel at the least bit wobbly. You do not want to fall. A walker is only an assistance device, something to keep you safe. Use it as long as you need to. No one can tell how you feel so should not be telling you when to give it up. It's your decision only!
