Has anyone tried using a cane with a seat?

I've been thinking of buying one.

What seems to bother my knees the most is slow walking with lots of standing.  Think garden tour, outdoor fair, farmer's market, etc.  Maybe more sitting breaks would help?
In head-on car crash in 2006. Smashed kneecaps, broken hip, head injury,and other fractures. Daily knee pain (just a 2 or 3 or 4 on a scale from 1-10, so I feel like a wimp). Can't jog, walk long distances or stand for a long period of time. Surgery to remove bone growth on pelvis (2017). Ongoing hip pain, possibly trochanteric bursitis.

I sure could have used something like this prior to my last fusion and post op.  What a great idea.  I hope someone, somewhere will see this and if they've used it respond.  Thanks, Blue

Please donate to help continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.
