Wasn't sure where this post should be help please mods. I'm trying to work out how to deal with dads latest thing. Previous was his sore ankle , which involved having to roll up trouser leg , constant stopping to rub it . Not that this has never been a problem , he has always sat on it , he was a miner from 15 in Manchester and did have odd trouble in later yrs, but surfaced springtime. This has now gone and we are onto his walking stick as leans but now he has a stick he is breathless , yes he is getting out of breath more as less active but ....does seem to be some over breathlessness. The ankle we could bypass , ignore etc but how to deal with this latest one when walking. Poor mum in town trying to get anywhere some days. Any ideas please.
