How do I learn to walk with crutches after a hip operation?

In 2013 i went for a total hip replacement operation as i am disable , my left leg is shorter that the right leg and i was given a total hip replacement. As from 2013 i have been walking with creches and before the operation i was not using the creches. Can you please refer me to the specific institution .

Hi Michael 
A physiotherapist can help you with this. Ask your doctor or local hospital where you had the operation to refer you. You can also ask the for a referral to an occupational therapist if you want. 
Good luck with the crutches !
