I had a TFCC repair a little over a year ago. Should I be okay to use normal arm crutches? My OT seams to think I might not be ready.

In brief: Tfcc repair

Would check with the original surgeon who did your surgery since he/she knows exactly what they did and saw.
Make sure you continue home exercises recommended by your therapist.

Use Lofstrand crutches, no involvement of the wrist.

Not like the image but with a lower arm platform.
