Reader Reviews

Should be required reading given out with crutches!Stuffing Sandwiches Down My Shirt is a very practical and inspirational look at how to survive and excel in recovering from an injury or in this case, surgery. Ms. Dugan uses her upbeat humor to share her own thoughts and creative solutions to the very real challenges encountered during recovery from surgery. She also shows how one can take ownership of their recovery and stay active in the recovery but in a safe and practical manner. As a surgeon, I will strongly recommend my patients to read this perspective BEFORE their procedure when possible so they can be as knowledgeable and proactive as possible.

Give them this book. They will thank you and pass it on to friends.

Very helpful information for anyone coping with life on one foot. When you're dealing with the stresses of surgery recovery, it's good to have things spelled out. The writing style is entertaining and easy to read. I'm recovering from ankle surgery and using a scooter to get around more than my crutches or walker, but much of the advice applies to these other one-footed modes of transportation as well as crutches.
