I am 5' 4". I have been 5' 4" since I was 15. I haven't lost any height yet - but I'm getting old so that is coming.

Anyway, the crutches the nice folks at the ER gave me yesterday were set for 5'4" but they felt wrong. So I moved them up to 5' 5" and they feel much better.


But I'm only 5' 4"!!!! :rant:

I'm 5' 16" Had a hard time finding crutches or a cane for someone that size when I needed them.

When my nerves act up I feel small. Nothing wrong with a good walking stick or cane.

Never could work out why crutches get set for an inch and a half below the arm-pit.

I've not been reading many threads so I'm not aware of why you need the crutches.
Did you have surgery or something?

Never could work out why crutches get set for an inch and a half below the arm-pit.because you are supposed to support your weight with your arms not your arm pits.

This. Supporting your weight with your armpits can lead to nerve damage.

I've been using a cane since last November for my arthritic hip. It does help.

I like forearm crutches better.

I'd laugh at you but I don't wanna get whacked with that cane.

I cannot help but picturing you swinging wildly with The PIN™, missing, spinning on your crutch and falling flat.



I did so without laughing or even snickering.

:woohoo: Saw the doctor and got a shot - I can walk!!!!

Still using the crutches for a few more hours - that knee makes me nervous (and it's a little shaky).

:yipee:

You wanted me to laugh at the thought? Canuckistanis are just so weird.
