    Was this a wine induced stroll or a sudden need to get to the powder room that was stronger than the fear of walking solo? I'd keep a cane handy but it sounds like you are about ready to leave the nest and fly.

    razz Congratulations!  I was ready to do this ages before my physio would let me. . She kept on and on about not walking without crutches, and I really don't know why!  If it feels OK, I;m sure it is ok!

    Well done you 👏🏻👍🏻😀

    That's how I found out I could manage without mine in the house. I daren't walk outside for fear of face planting on the pavement. Plus physio told me I'm walking too dodgy to go without.

    Well done you...your body is telling you 'it's ok and getting better'  just keep one crutch handy.

    I have one parked just in the hall for if I need it going upstairs and the other is parked near the lounge door...

    Well done! It happens all of a sudden doesn't it? I am now 7 weeks post-op and this morning I realised that I had washed my feet how I used to - standing on one leg and just lifting my foot up to wash it.  So good balance on the new knee and good bend in lifting it up.

    Hey, well done! Funny how we suddenly find ourselves doing something automatically that we wouldn't normal normally consider possible. When I'm having a "good" day, I'll often leave one of my crutches lying around the house. What the neighbours must think when they hear me shout "Stephen, have you seen my crutch lately?" . 😄

    Keep up the good work, it sounds like it's given you a little confidence boost xxx
