Re: Surgery set for 10/18/12: Peroneal Tendon Subluxation, Debridement

My doctor suggested a knee walker. I'm not sure what brands everyone uses but the one I have does not leave my foot hanging and dangling off the back. Only thing not on the scooter is the bottom section of my foot. The actual ankle itself is fully supported and the rear wheels stick out much farther than my foot does. I'm sure different models are built differently. I can get around just fine on crutches. It's just a pain and the knee walker gives a sliver of your independence back. Hope everyone is doing well!
