knee surgery/crutches part 2

so, a week ago i posted community.livejournal.com/menstrual_cups/2425122.html about how i didn't know how to handle a cup after knee surgery.

thank you for the answers BUT the do not work, at least not as long as i'm still here in the hospital.

because: not only can i not put any weight on my leg but i can't bend it and hardly lift it on it's own, and even then only in a stretched position. the hospital toilet isn't very roomy either, so just spreading my legs doesn't work at all either.

even cloth pads don't really work for me here because i have to wiggle around on my butt a lot and they move around just a little too much for me to relie on them.

so i have budged and asked my other half to buy me a pack of tampons. i hate them and haven't used any for at least three years now but shoving a finger halfway in for about 2 seconds is somehow possible where putting two fingers with a cup between them halfway in and then put another finger all the way in to check if the cervix really is inside the cup and not playing hide and seek with it is not at all possible for me at this point.

i do have high hopes to work it out next month though, as i will be able to at least bend and lift my leg by then.

well, if anyone does have any other suggestions that may work even with one stiff and totally useless leg i would be thankfull but i just can't think of any at all on my own.
