I'm having leg surgery in a few weeks and struggling to find the items I will need post surgery. I have a mid-calf walking boot that fits, but my doctor says a tall boot would be better. I have not been able to find one big enough to go around my calf. I also need crutches, but haven't found any with a weight capacity over 350. Anyone have any recommendations of where to find these items?
Thanks!

The great white north, eh?
If you can't find a boot, perhaps see if there is an Occupational Therapist near you that takes random clients. The ones I've known were good at improvising gear with thermoplastic and may be able to do something to help (or may have access to sites that aren't targeting the general public)
