There's nothing wrong with still using a cane at 7 weeks. It's just a tool and there are no prizes for getting off it early. Use it as long as you feel you need it. It's much better to do that than to risk a fall, and you should continue to use it until you can walk with a normal gait.I am 7 weeks postop, and still using a cane. Once again, comparing to my last replacement,
I was not using a cane at this point.
What your PT had you do was ridiculous.PT therapist has had me try walking on plank with parrell bars. She saw I tried. That was last week. She didn’t say anything about it this week. Just getting concerned I can’t walk without it at this point due to pain I’m trying.
