There is always hope and with hard and painful work, you will get there. My legs were the same as yours. I may not have that HORRIBLE pain but they are still weak.
I don't understand why my surgeon doesn't want me to use a walking aid. He wants me to walk but without a walking aid, the distance is minimal; it isn't pain that stops me, just fatigue of my legs. I don't need to use anything in the house, but outside? I admit I cheat. I go to places that have a chart to hold onto or, I hold onto the oerson I am with. The doctor said if I fall again, it could be disastrous. What would you do??? Right??

I’m using a walker! A lot better than falling!

I still have my walker I’m scared I’ll fall without it! I’d be worried too! Thinking about you!
