Thank you! I spoke to Mum yesterday and she is adamant she doesn’t want a downstairs bed or commode, and that she can bend the knee sufficiently to sit on a chair, which means she should be able to use the stairlift and get into the bathroom. She still has to wear the immobiliser for one more week because of the oozing, so I don’t know if she is achieving a full 90 degree bend or not, but she does sit forward to eat and it appears to be in the right position. @Josephine did you find you could bend it enough to sit on a normal chair when the immobiliser came off, or if not how long did that take? She needs a 90 degrees bend for the stairlift and bathroom access. Many Thanks xx
That's an odd question, mumshelp, as I had neither a problem with ROM nor an immobiliser so I really can't offer you any comments about that.
