I can not stand for any length of time. Walking is very painful. It hurts so bad that I am in tears. I don't go anywhere that is not necessary it hurts so bad. I can't go to the grocery store or anywhere that I have to stand or to have to walk. I have been using a cane because my balance is off and I have fell five time since the first of the year
