Mum is in alot of pain with osteoarthritis in her knee.
She has moderate, I think approaching severe Alz. Until recently the one thing I could do with her that she would enjoy was having a good long walk. So this activity has been taken from us atm. Shes had steroid injection which have not helped and been offered a replacement. She's still living with my 'step dad' and he's finding it increasingly difficult looking after her. (It's been the plan that wen it's too much mum will come and live her last days/years with me)
Pain killers are not keeping pain under control. If she was to have surgery she would be completely disorientated and upset in hospital and it worries me she'd never learn to walk on her new knee. I'm worried the experience would greatly hasten her condition. Anyone got any thoughts please.
