Nasty thanks I'm in ky, my house is already handicapped ready I did that last yr.
I don't know if my state will allow me to drive with the hand controls or if I will need them! I hate having to have people do stuff for me.
They are relatively cheap to buy and install.

I totally agree johnP I can do therophy just a few miles away but it's very poorly run!
I want to get the best I can get and that's about 20 miles away.
My wife is able to drive she just won't! If she did she still couldn't get out of the van without help.
That's what sucks I won't be able to lift her scooter and load it for her.
I will work it out its just going to take alot of help.

Usually they can help with things like a scooter lift for your wife also and if she needs in home help while your recuperating. Everybody gets some disabilities as they age, and I tell people if you can use the help, take it. I would rather see my tax dollar help you then some welfare queen with 10 kids by 12 different guys😇. The choice of course is yours:

When Dad was 74 he had a total knee replacement. He was light bowling after 8 weeks of strict PT. He's 90yrs old today & I can just about keep up with him now.

Moral of the story is your Drs don't always lie. If you'r gonna put your life in his hands you may as well put your faith & belief in that same person that got schooled for 6yrs to take care of you. Everybody recovers at a different rate/pace. If being a Dr was easy hell we'd all be one.
