Hi Everyone,

I know people on here will understand because we have probably all done it. Coming out of our wet room last week using my rollator my legs just gave way and I fell with my legs trapped under me. So frustrating because my husband is usually right behind me but he was to the side and couldn't stop it.

He managed to carry me to the bed(!!!) and he couldn't bend my leg so he rang 111. Such a brilliant service because they immediately sent an ambulance. Two very lovely paramedics examined me and felt it would be traumatic and painful to move me to a stretcher. They rang my GP who was immediately round with stronger painkillers. I am still in bed a few days later but not in so much pain and am very grateful for such prompt care and that nothing is broken.

Lesson learnt and I am going to see my OT next week to think of alternatives for transfers.

Take Care Everyone,
Love Debbie x
