I might need an operation on my right ankle meaning I will need to be non weight bearing on it for 6 weeks. When I had crutches for two weeks in February I gave myself tendonitis in both wrists and sesamoiditis in both thumbs. Still being treated for these! What could I use instead of crutches if I have to go ahead with the operation? A wheelchair just wouldn't be practical at home.
