Hi Gabe,
First I’d hunt the bathroom stalls that offer you the most amount of space so that you can use your walker to assist you with your bathroom needs.  Depending on the size of the walker it should be able to adequately fit in the bathroom with you.  It will probably take a little bit getting used to it.  But the stalls should offer you enough space to be able to turn around with the walker.  Hope things are working out well for you in that area.
