At 7 weeks post-op, I've finally graduated from the shower chair. This might be late in comparison to most people, but we have a really really high ledged clawfoot tub, so I was afraid to try until now. Getting in is no problem, since I can just step in with my strong leg and stand up, pulling the weak leg along with me. Getting out is extremely tricky and a little scary, though. I have to lean way forward on my crutches and gently lift out my weak leg, then try to balance while pulling out the strong one. I ended up kinda hopping on my weak leg to gain balance for a second, but I didn't hurt myself. So no more shower chair, yay. I feel like a new person. Showering standing up is really nice.
Now if I can just shake myself out of this funk that has me not eating or drinking all day, I'll be fine.
