Hello Wahyu, Thank you for the question.
A person's ability to mesh is influenced by various things, for example from the body's energy, the structure of the legs (bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints), nerve function and blood vessels. Difficulty walking that occurs in your mother can be caused by various conditions such as:
insufficient food intake so that the body's energy is not enough. Muscles that are weakened due to not being used for one week of pain in bones or joints, blood vessel or nerve disorders if your mother has uncontrolled blood sugar levels Please monitor your mother's condition during the recovery period this. If your mother's appetite improves, the energy needed for the body will also recover. At the same time, advise your mother to do light leg exercises to restore strength to her leg muscles, for example by moving her ankles and knees repeatedly a day. If necessary, enlist the help of a physiotherapist to help your mother undergo physical therapy so that your mother can slowly practice walking again. If your mother's food intake and leg muscle strength has recovered but your mother still has difficulty walking, don't hesitate to consult a doctor for further examination and treatment. The doctor will find out other causes by conducting a series of examinations on your mother.
Hope this information is helpful.
