Any help for a wheelchair?!
Hi, I have badly hurt my leg in September. Shattered my knee cap, fractured the bone behind, dislocated my knee and severed a nerve. Now it looks like all metal work they put in is collapsing and I need another op. I also have drop foot where I can't move my foot and don't have much sensasensation in it. I live in a first floor flat so if I am to get out someone will need to carry a wheelchair down stairs. So it needs to be lightweight Also some sort of mobility scooter might give me some life back! So does anyone know of any sort of funding to get either? The problem with the nerve going to take years to heal if it ever does. I already get Pip for mental health but no mobility and I would really struggle to buy a wheelchair or scooter. I've looked at second hand ones but I wouldn't know how reliable they would be. So sorry for the massive post! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
