Can anyone help me. I am form the southwest in somerset about 30mins from Bristol. I have RRMS. I have l sided foot drop and walk with the aid of stick. I can only walk very slowly and am very stiff. I have sensory loss to the left hand. The only walking I do is form the house to my car which is a short walk then walking from the car par at work to my office. I manage the stairs with care and slowly. I dont go to the shops unless with a friend or husband. I have applied for PIP and had my medical last friday - still waiting to here. ( fingers crossed?!) I struggle with driving with foot drop and I have a manual car!!! but I love working - helps my mood and don’t want to restrict my life further. I work as a nurse and love what I do and do it with passion. Oooops i will get to the point! just thought I should set the scene
My husband is due to run the London Virgin Marathon in April and after the run we have booked to go to france on the Eurostar to celebrate out wedding anniversary. Having considered my limited mobility I am feeling quite anxious at the prospect of tacking London, Eurostar then Paris. I am considering ? hire of a motorised wheelchair /scooter. This has been a difficult decision because i struggled when I started to use a stick. I want to try and use the chair or get to locations then use a stick to try and walk around venues.
Can anyone help with travel tips/advice and also where I can hire a wheelchair from for this journey?
