Hi forum, I am scheduled for a PEG Monday, and it suddenly occurred to me that getting me out of bed, and especially getting me onto the toilet, may be a real issue for a time while healing. I am still (just barely) able to get myself between bed and wheelchair with a sliding board, but for toilet or shower chair we rely totally on my transfer belt, which fits snugly around my rib cage. No action at all from the rag doll legs. Any thoughts on whether this is going to be possible? No space for hoyer lift. Sales Rep. coming Thursday re a ceiling lift, but I think I’ve left it too late. I’m wondering if I need to reschedule for after getting a better set-up.
