Yay! I finally have a date for surgery - Nov 7, 2012. Now I am starting to think more about the practicalities of maneuvering around after surgery. So does anyone have an opinion on using crutches vs. a walker after surgery? I already own some crutches and am pretty nimble on them (or I was last time I needed to use them), so I was planning on using those. However, if there is a strong case for a walker, then I can see about getting one (it will be cheaper than buying from the hospital, I am sure). Also, I live on a hill and getting into my house requires the use of stairs. Mentioning just in case those are factors for one or the other.
