... Yeah this board has helped me a LOT as far as expectations go. I've never had surgery either, but I was an athlete in high scool and college, so I've had my fair share of injuries. I don't think I'm doing the crutch traning, but I don't really need to because I've used them multiple times. I'm just worried about trying to get up the stairs to my apartment the day of surgery...
