Hi all just an update so I'm almost 5 weeks post op. I fell down the stairs the other day thank goddess for the cast I'm ok! I got my even up shoe today because I have 12 more days until the cast comes off. My foot wants to move so badly! I've developed bursitis from using the one arm to pull myself up! Uggghhhh this crutch life is not for me. I went driving today by myself felt a sense of independence though! Have a great weekend all!

    Hope your OK after your fall. Don't think I would get on with the cry that go under the arm. Mine go around just above the elbow with a hand. Rest, but that made my hands hurt in the beginning. So you are now road tripping, great isn't it, and I hate driving, but that was one of the biggest things I missed. Like you, just for independence. Just do small journeys first. I found if I drove more than half hr my ankle ached plus the leg muscle from knee upwards. Ooooch. Keep. Going.... Sx
