A lot of bloggers recommend using a sock aid post op. They aren’t expensive, but I found a picture of a DIY aid on pinterest and decided to see if I could save myself the money. Verdict: I think it will work (especially since I made it through 2 previous surgeries without one).
What you’ll need:
Yarn, twine, or string
Cut the top and bottom off of your 1L bottle
Cut down the center of the bottle and remove approximately 1-2 inches (depending on the width of your foot
Tape the edges with duct tape
Hole punch the top corners
Add string/yarn (and I duct taped the rest of the bottle because it was sticking to my foot)
It worked pretty well….
To get the sock on the rest of the way I bent my leg to my butt and pulled it over my heel! All for $0.99’s! Not to bad.
