Thanks Lena! My PT prepared me for driving. We practiced getting in and out of car and stowing crutches. They actually did that 3 or 4 weeks after surgery but there was snow on the ground, stairs to go down and a garage door to open and I was to afraid to try. How long did it take you to get rid of crutches once you started WB? Are you going to PT? I start partial WB Thursday and PT twice a week, have been going once a week. I want to start water walking at the pool as soon as I feel confident enough to walk on wet surfaces.
This is a hard row to hoe, isn't it Lena?! Start ringing up those docs/pts and find out when you can drive! That will REALLY cheer you up!
BTW, I'm full French Canadian!
