"going anywhere is a bit of a struggle" seems you are getting a taster of how daily life is in your 'dotage' years (grin) I can sympathise though as was on crutches with foot in plaster Dec 2005 and snowbound.
I'm hoping for a late heatwave instead of snow and ice - I'm trying to be an optimist.
I had never realised quite how limiting a whacking great plaster cast and a pair of crutches could be. I find walking pretty tiring, and because the consultant surgeon told me to avoid putting any weight on the repaired foot "under any circumstances" I'm in a perpetually nervous state.
I'm told - by a client who specialises in sports injuries - that the first ten post-operative days are the worst, and that it all gets easier after that. I'm currently on day nine, so we'll see.
My wife says I'm just a big baby, and that I should 'Man up'. I don't know where she picks these phrases up.
