Thanks – I love my walker (cheap-o Walmart variety), especially for using the loo, or getting up-right from sitting on a couch. I like the stability of it. I also like using it first thing in the morning – when shoulders are sore and just want the lowest risk solution to get from point a to point b. But, I find myself walking at half the speed of crutches (and 1/10th the speed of the wheelchair), so buyer beware! Get well soon.
