Hi all,I have been using a walker since my surgery. It was
getting easier and I had mentioned to my physical therapist that I was thinking about getting a 4 footed cane and trying it out. SHe was hopeful because of her concern that i was still using a rolling walker at 9-10 weeks post op. I used that cane for the first time yesterday when I went to get my mail and pick my son up from day care. I also took him to the park. This was no more walking then I would do with my walker on occasion. Buy the end of my outting, I told my husband that the cane was much harder then the walker and i was sore, but i hoped by tomorrow I would be OK. I got in bed to rest. I was unable to sleep, I had a great deal of pain, by back more right then left(unusual) ached at a 8-9 level, and my legs feel like dead weight. I have toes on both feet feeling "shocks" almost constantly still today. I have anly been able to "shuffel" (as opposed to walking) around the house (bathroom). I am supposed to gp to PT today but dont feel up to it. I am wondering if going might help, maybe she can undo some wrong move. What do you all think. Please advice.
I hope you all are healing well,
