"Have you every tried to obtain a set of crutches in Thailand."???

No, but there are many large pharmacies that sell everything from wheelchairs, crutches, walkers, bedpans and all sorts of appliances for the sick, injured and handicapped.

Fantastic, we have such a local supplier …….. I just couldn't get there because I had no crutches.

As i have already posted, why could you not get another person go get crutches for you?

Now take my situation, stuck at home, cannot get on my scooter without help.

Got a problem, wife not home, phone other Thai visa members !!HELP !!

There are 3 who would be here after getting a call.

Or i could shout out, there are 2 villagers who would come to help me, as has happened in the past.

You were the one that asked the rhetorical question. You might have said "Crutches were unavailable in my area". As others have stated, crutches are not that hard to find if you look, but not in your area, apparently.

At the time I needed them, I lived alone in an apartment that I'd just taken possession of in a new area.

Knew nobody. Fortunately other Thai residents supplied me with basic essentials until I was mobile enough to get my own.

A number of neighbours tried, but failed to obtain a pair of crutches on my behalf.

Local supplier, out of stock.

New area, knew nobody.

My situation was totally different to yours.

Flying or long travel in confined spaces is not allowed with a cast on due to blood problem circulation. Also known as trombosis.

 

leg needs to be elevated which would be impossible in a van or airplane.

 

seen many people fly with broken legs? 

I have flown myself with my arm in a cast (two days after the accident). I am pretty sure I have seen others with a foot cast fly.

You could have used a wheelchair.

No I couldn't.

I was in a first floor apartment only accessible by stairs.

Yes with medical approval but not very common was my point. Trombosis is a leg thing not arm thing😉
