I'd second everything that's been said. Your PT can be a wealth of info. about
various devices that may help you. Also, before my surgery I visited a couple of medical supply stores and the people there are also very knowledgeable. Because like Ry, I would be home alone and I needed to think ahead about
how to get dressed, etc.
Thankfully, it's summer and I can wear a lot of Birkenstocks, and before my surgery I found some slip on 'mules" that tied tight and I still use them. All other shoes for the winter are slip on, although now I can tie my sneekers, but I sit and put my foot on my knee to do it. But the tool Ry mentioned should help with socks and such.
Tom, I also want to thank you for your comments on the other thread. When I read them it brought tears to my eyes. So you DID help someone last night - me!
p.s. And I'm waiting for you to join the beach party!
