Hi Kanjum,
First i appreciate for taking care of your dad, secondly your dad is having chronic lung infection with collapse of part of lung due to chronic inactivity so he needs proper physiotheraphy, secondly improve his nutrition with proteine rich food,
after this either you can slowly mibilze asking him to walk with supprt. or re surgery can be done to do austhin moor prosthesis or other surgery. consult orthopedician for further treatment
take care

I am taking care of a patient which his family is dying to see him walk again. He's been bed ridden for a yr now and they are trying to find someone who is willing to help if you could let me know how you got your dad to walk for being bed ridden I would really appreciate it very much. I want to see this families dream come true. No one that they seem to go to wants to help. Thank you for reading this you could email me back at
