Larger pharmacies in China sell durable medical equipment (like crutches) as well as medication. They tend to cluster around the major hospitals. One of these is more likely to stock them than is an ordinary neighborhood 药方。


拐杖 = crutches (at least in Kunming.)

Just wondering if anyone has some creative suggestions.
Put her in a taxi and take her to the hospital. Tell her it's your treat. Seriously, if you're hurt enough you need crutches you should see a doctor. If her ankle is broken just walking on crutches for a while is not going to help.


Hope she gets well soon!
