Hi. Im recovering slowly after 2nd hip revision. Have finally started weight bearing with crutches, but muscle strength is very poor so cant go far. Still can only sit on a perching stool or a very high chair. Have been Housebound now since November and have serious cabin fever. I can get into a jeep style car, but dont have access to one, I can't get into a standard car. I was given a wheelchair post op with a leg extension but its too low for me, so I have to put two thick foam cushions on it before I can sit on it, I then am nearly falling out of it!! I am only 5'5", so not particularly tall. Any advice about the wheelchair? (My community OT saw it but didnt have any suggestions). Has anyone had any similar experiences?
