Comment : ABOUT THE BATHING
Posted by HEATHER D on Wed 10:55am 17 November 2004


I READ YOUR BATHING EXPERIENCE. I HAVE AN EXTERNAL FIXATOR ON THE LOWER R LEG AND I HAVE MANAGED TO NEVER GET IT WET. WHAT I HAVE FOUND THAT WORKS IS YOU FIND A FOLDABLE HOUSE CHAIR. OURS IS METAL AND I SET UP SO THAT MY BACK IS TO THE SIDE OF THE TUB, SO THAT MY LEGS STICK OUT THE OTHER SIDE, INTO THE BATHROOM, OVER THE TUB, IF THAT MAKES SENSE. I LAY A TOWEL ON MY LEG, AND DRAPE THE SHOWER CURTAIN OVER THE TOP OF THE TOWEL. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SHOWER HEAD THAT IS FLEXIBLE AND I JUST HOLD IT IN THE RIGHT HAND AND WASH AWAY. THEY ARE REALLY CHEAP AND IT FEELS LIKE YOUR ALMOST NORMAL, AND YOUR ABLE TO SHOWER YOUR ENTIRE BODY, EXCEPT THAT LEG. YOU COULD EVEN GET ONE FROM HOME DEPOT THAT ATTACHES VERY CRUDELY AT THE SPICHOT. FOR THE TOES, MINE GOT SLIGHTLY FUNKY TOO, AND I FILLED A BOWL WITH 2 INCHES OF WARM WATER AND DIPPED MY TOES IN IT, LET THEM SOAK, AND THEN BENT DOWN TO SCRUB. IT WAS AMAZING ALL THE DEAD SKIN THAT FELL OFF, ALONG WITH THE ODOR. YUCK. GOOD LUCK TO YOU.
