Hoping someone has some advice for me My 84 year old mum had surgery 2 weeks ago and although eating well has lost a further 1.2kg after coming out of hospital. She was very active prior to surgery and did quite a bit of walking (albiet slow) with her wee dog. She has been in bed most of this time and is only walking a little each day up and down the hallway. Is this normal? She thinks she is doing quite well and keeps telling me "its only been 2 weeks". I also think the anaesthetic has made her quite muddled. Im not sure how to proceed with her as im happy if she needs this extra time to recover but dont want her to lose her strength. She has post polio effects as well. Should I push her more to get up and dressed etc. She is staying with me at the moment and although she wants to go home I dont think she is up to it yet. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
