However they are advised to use two elbow crutches for 4 weeks after surgery. Jim says, “I probably remained on the crutches for 2 weeks. I then went on to a walking stick for 10 days. After that I felt confident and have been walking well since then.” After 6 weeks, Jim took the opportunity to start swimming and began walking up to a mile a day.
