Charles Adams of the Shropshire panel needs help with the following please:
I am at a standstill with a case and wonder if the Remap community could help.
This lady is in her late 40s and suffers from Crohn’s disease and this has resulted in the surgical removal of large amounts of tissue from her buttocks.
She can stand and walk to a limited degree, but to avoid pain she must lie on her right side (pain prevents her from lying on her left side) and this is without variety, is uncomfortable and limits her social interaction.
Together with her OT, we have discussed some type of kneeling support/chair, but the available types require support from the buttocks and this would not be tolerable.
The lady has an ileostomy bag that would limit her ability to be supported on her front and also has a condition that prevents underarm support.
Any and all ideas are sought to help this lady.
