I've been very fortunate - so far I can get away with just using a cane - mostly against fatigue, but also helpful in balance and mitigating hip, leg and foot pain. I have also made use of scooter-chairs at museums, malls, and other large areas, when they are available. If they aren't I just can't go as far. But I can get around the house or walk short distances without aids. As I say - very fortunate.
