I understand that each of us are in different stages with this stupid disease. Unless the Lord heals me, I know I'm not to far from that. For now though, as for myself, I'm using the walls and my cane. I looked at those 5 flops online, I don't think I could wear those even before my injury. I have never been able to handle anything between my toes. Snowman2, I may have to do what you are doing and get the sheepskin slippers.
    Hehe I like that. I think I'll name mine too (both of them). They shall now be known as Spongebob & Gary. Haha

I can walk and do walk but only short distances, like 15-20 yards is my limit or I really pay for it so to me it was very limiting. Dr.s and PTs always say to walk and of course you should as much as you can but everyone has their limits as to how much they can without suffering so it doesn't make sense to me to push yourself past your limits and then pay dearly for it. That is how I think anyway.
    I agree 100% why suffer and wreck your outing I would only use the scooter for long distance I can't even go through the grocery store or mall without one god I used to hate those mall walkers that you see lol!!! i don't know why but now I would give anything to be able to do that

    I think I saw that model recently when I was at the fair my wife stopped this guy riding it and asked him how he gets it from place to place and he said it comes apart but it seemed a bit small I'm over 6 foot so I'm going to have to keep looking

    Re: RSD/CRPS and isolation

    There are so many brands and styles and sizes that it would help a lot to be able try it out before buying. Mine is a very small one but I am not very big so it is fine. It does come apart and goes in the trunk but I could not do it by myself only because of my new hips. I really wouldn't want to be any taller for the model I have though. The larger ones sometimes don't come apart but those racks that go on the back of a vehicle look like the clear answer for that. If you are in an area with a lot of Craig's listing, that should be the best way to go since the larger ones can get pricey. Good luck, I know I would be totally lost without mine!
