Your physiotherapist will fit you for crutches and supervise you with your first few steps. It is important to maintain as much weight as you can tolerate through your operated leg as soon as possible with support.
Begin using 2 crutches (3 point support)
Progress to 1 crutch (2 point support) as tolerated
To navigate up and down stairs think GAS and SAG
Going up (GAS) – good leg, affected leg, sticks
Going down (SAG) – sticks, affected leg, good leg
