Practical tips

Posted , 8 users are following.

hi, 

im having a big toe fusion next week and I am beginning to panic about small things like getting around and using the shower. Does anyone have any tips on showering versus bathing and his to keep the area dry. Also any tips on exercise during the first couple of weeks. I have never used crutches, are they difficult. How do you get upstairs? -all these questions were going round in my head last night. Any help

 would be appreciated.
