Bowel issies, sorry!!

Hi all,

Don’t know if anyone can share or help my problem. After emptying bowel, my legs just go to jelly! I am a wheelchair user but my legs normally give me enough to stand for a few moments at least.

Not sure why things change so much after emptying? Makes it so hard wiping/pulling up trousers.

Any advice would be welcome!

Thanks.

P.S Had to go anonymous!!!

Hi, yes…bowels are fun for me too.

I am also a wheelie.

What I find so tiring is all the necessary paperwork. I get a sore arm and hand.

I do some transfers by using a turner (Tina) and some by hoist. But the turner ones are soooo tiring. I do it to keep some leg strength for outings.

Everything we do is damned exhausting. I feel like I`ve climbed a mountain when going to the loo.

Have you ever thought about a closomat loo?

Looking forward to using the new Changing Places loo in Leeds new shopping centre. They have a hoist! I`m so excited…sad, innit?

luv Pollx
