Hi, could you lovely people advise me how long you used your crutches for?
I am 6 weeks post op and I am happily on the mend!
I never used my crutches around the house on my return from hospital, mainly because I only have a little house, I think I would have been more at risk of using them indoors!!
whenever I have been out since I have used my crutches, but using them less and less now.
however I have found when doing a shop at the local supermarket by the time I get to the checkout, I feel exhausted and in pain again?
I don't know if I should still be using them?
I have another week to go before I have my post op consultation with the hospital, obviously I will ask their advice when I go?
but I just wondered if you could share with me when you felt ready to part with the crutches?
