My mum fractured her femur so they decided to pin it said that was the best thing. She has been in hospital now for four weeks still won’t let her weight bear on it, I have tried to get her into a rehabilitation on NHS but the hospital states they won’t take her has she is not weight bearing. The physio is useless all he is doing is getting her to transfer herself to a wheel chair from the bed on a banana board, but states she isn’t allowed to bear any weight yet. The hospital now wants to send her home with still no weight bearing with carers four times a day. My concern is when can she weight bear and is this correct? Before she was walking with a walker getting around, my concern is the longer they don’t let her weight bear her muscles are deteriorating. Help.
