    if I am sitting down, I can not stand up using my legs, I have to use my arms, or my legs will buckle and i will fall. Or standing trying to sit like in a chair or taking a shit, i just basically fall I can not sit down slowly because my legs give out. Is there anything I can do to help with recovery. I had to take the day off of work today, because I wouldn't be able to do my job without a cain, or a walker. :(

    Welcome to the club. Do legs on weekends or friday nights so you dont HAVE to walk anywhere other than the gym the next few days.
