Helmut-Yes, the walker is nice I sure didn't want to learn crutches in recovery I really like having 5 feet on the ground instead of three. Espacially now! As far as swelling.....my whole leg is still swollen. My foot as well. I think it's partly due to the immobilizer. That doesn't let me sit too comfy ever, then all the weight of my leg is on my heel...then that get's to hurting.
May I ask how many of you are able to sleep on your sides?? Does this do anything to the knee??
Sometimes I just put the blankets betwen my leg and just lay on side with legs stacked on top of each other too. Hope that helps. Takes a bit of trial and error but it is worht it.
