I am no longer required to use a cane!
Truth be told, I haven't been using the cane for quite some time, except when I go to physiotherapy.
But today, it's official.
Physiotherapist has given me permission to quit using the cane.
- When I go out for this first winter, I must take the cane with me for stability in icy conditions (my cane has a pick on it), and I must use creepers on my boots. We don't want to fall!!
- If I'm going to be doing a lot of walking, (ie shopping with MLC) I should really take my cane with me for when fatigue sets in.
Otherwise, I'm good to go!
