Before my injection I was hurting so bad I could barely get around. I was using a cane and still struggling. Walking in Walmart was not even possible. I had to resort to a scooter cart which I hated using cause I know how people judge you....... Or not go.
I had talked to my Rheumotologist about this and she said she would help me fill out the paperwork to order a scooter. I could no longer do extended walking. Around the house I was ok. But a Scooter would be great for fall festivals, craft fairs, camping, lake house and going to the park or pool etc. I was considering it but not sure how much Medicare would pay and can’t really afford it right now. But need it. Want it.
A friend told me about a place called FODAC. Famlies of Disabled Adults and Children. They get donations of wheelchairs and walkers and scooters. Fix them up and donate them to people who need them. She told me to call and check on them and see what they say. Well Praise the Lord they said there was no charge except for batteries and there was no paperwork or prescription needed. I got an appointment for the following week and left there with a Blue Pace Saver Scooter. It’s not new but it doesn’t need to be. It works and it is just what I needed I am getting used to driving it although I have not needed it because my pain has been minimal I am using it to ride around a bit outside. I did go to our Neighborhood Garage Sales on it and it worked GREAT! Much easier than getting in and out of the car which is difficult with a painful hip. I just drove right up to the sales and most of them I didn’t even have to get off.
So there it is... Praying the pain will stay away longer and fortunate to have a scooter...
