I wore my walker out already. Well, part of it.
A required piece of equipment for total hip replacement is a front wheel walker.
I have used it diligently, wearing a path around the inside of my house. I have also taken it outside to walk on our gravel driveway and across the lawn. It doesn't work that well on gravel or grass so I lifted it it lot.
Recently I have taken it over to the neighborhood park to walk/wheel on the paved pathways. Much better.
However, I wore right through the post caps on the back legs.
Thinking about what to do, Tom looked on line and found wheels! They can be replacement wheels or they can be used to convert a front wheel walker to a four wheel walker.
Then the new wheel sleeves slipped right on.
This would not be approved for early in recovery, because at first you need more stability and these wheels could just slip right out from under you.
But now I am using my walking stick in the house and my four wheels will be great for outside. Zoom!
Yeah, I know. Easy does it. I am modifying my eagerness a bit due to some pain I need to get under control. But I am happy with the possibilities of my new wheels.
And.... my Amaryllis is reblooming on its second bloom stalk. So pretty.
