Well I'm getting the hang of the knee crutch & can get around the house & up & down the stairs in it (using a crutch in that other hand for balance) so I'm ready for surgery now. It's actually more of a peg leg using the thigh muscles to walk stiff legged. Yes the knee does feel odd but then again it's not stable anyway. The hospital physio wants me to bring it in with me for surgery so they can make sure I'm using it right, that's great news. I'll be pleased to be out of the painful walking that just jumps on me unexpectedly & the sleeping issues it's causing, but I know it's not straightforward for many weeks initially.
