Mudlark BS: walking with a cane - how? (24) RE: BS: walking with a cane - how? 02 Dec 04


I also had to use a cane for about a month after hip replacement. I ended up not with the nifty Victorian cane I'd invisaged but an orthopedic shoe looking deal that had the advantage, however, of being adjustable...very important. I also found opposite side advice a little clumsy to start with but was soon walking a mile with it, with little trouble. What did cause me trouble was continually losing it. Easy to hang of checkout counter while paying, then walk away, once you CAN walk w/o a cane.

Good news that there are no fractures...hope you heal fast, Steve (and Happy Christmas from your ex-SS).
