I'm such an awful person, completely forgot about the site? After the help it supplied me with through my recovery!
I'd have to say I'm pretty much normal. Although I do have weekly physio, I go out and barely use my crutches. Sometimes I take one if I know I'll be out for a lengthly period of time, but I walk around Tesco and do my shopping without any aids.
The old left leg doesn't like it when I walk around on any other surfaces except home, it feels unsteady? Which is unusual as there are combinations of wood, tile and carpet?
I decorated my bedroom as we just moved house and I was up ladders, as I'm only 5foot tall, to reach the ceiling. And I had no problems. I'm climbing stairs every day loads of times a day. Nothing is as difficult
I also use the bath shower, so I climb in and out myself. Its great to be honest !
Sitting on my knees is the only catch, still can't do that without pain
All in all I can't complain. Even my hoilday was awesome
I'll try and update this when I next see my consultant.
