Mum gets back on her feet in time for Mother’s Day



Following a serious road traffic accident, Louise Waller, from Waltham Abbey, Essex,  suffered multiple injuries, including a pneumothorax, severe pelvic fractures, which included a fractured acetabulum, while also suffering a fracture to the femur and fractures to both lower limbs – injuries that left her severely incapacitated.

As part of Louise’s initial hospital treatment, the pneumothorax required a lobectomy, while the pelvic injuriesneeded multiple pins, with the tibia and fibula in both of Louise’s legs also requiring open reduction internal fixation.

In addition to her physical injuries, Louise was also suffering from PTSD, which included extreme anxiety at the prospect of increased mobility.
