I was in that condition for 2 1/2 years before I got cytoxan infusions. Actually I was worse, as I couldn’t walk at all, arms were weak, hands were all but useless. I used a power chair to get around the house & elsewhere, we had a plain minivan with a powerlift in the back. I used a sliding board to help me transfer to the recliner, the commode & the power chair. I also used the sliding board to transfer to my shower chair in the bathroom, before that hubbie had given me sponge baths for 2 years. We did do stand up transfers when he was home, to get be upright to stand & get into the van. Fortunately I have longs legs & onlyweighed 136# at that time. Watch your back, as it doesn’t take much to ruin it as we age.
