    Closing the rings is so hard on cructches. I have been in them for over a month and have at least a month and half to go. I wish there was a cructch mode to calculate how hard it is to move my full size adult body all over the place on these darn crutches. Okay... just had to complain...

    We have three pairs. Hubby got some for knee surgery and I got some for knee surgery...and I got another pair plus the iWalk this time bc my first ones were a touch too big. Going to try to avoid them ever again!

    Yikes. Lots of bad knees.
    Hope you have a fast recovery.

    I had for surgery and was on crutches.
    Day two it was less painful walking without crutches

    I'm on them permanently. The arm swing actually helps boost my activity on the watch. But generally speaking, I register much less than an able bodied person.

    My knee wasn’t bad...just had an unexplainable recurring cyst we had to remove bc it was close to a nerve. It hasn’t come back since! Phew! This broken foot though is nuts.

    Took a slap shot off the top of my left foot. I knew it was broken but the navy doctor insisted it was bruised. It healed after a very long time but the bone didn’t mend properly and it became a huge bump.
    The doctor looked at it and said damn.
    They sliced the top of my foot, and dremeled the bump that was nearly 3cm wide and 2 cm high.
    It was such a relief.
    People take their feet for granted until something happens to them.
