    Using Bathroom with Knee Scooter

    I am worried about using the bathroom after my foot surgery. I will be on a knee scooter, non-weight bearing and have been told my foot can't touch the floor and it must always be touching a cushion. So - I go into the bathroom on my scooter where there will be a seat riser and the side bars. Now, how do I get from the scooter on to the toilet seat without my foot touching the floor? And up again ?? My foot will be in a cast probably 1/2 way up to my knee.

    If you don't have enough upper body strength to move yourself around to that then a traditional walker would be a better option. Either way, your surgeon can send you to PT to teach you how prior to surgery.
