I was going to suggest the dog walking thing, as dogs sometimes very good for this, but see you tried it.

Probably will have to look at diet.

So since Feb 2018 we've had another appointment with my sons surgeon, that was in November, and my son was put on the list for two stage surgery, fast forward to now he's had his surgery and he's recovering well. Just need to get him exercising, he lost weight whilst in hospital as he didn't like their food, Princess Eugene visited the ward while we were there, didn't meet her though. He had a few meltdowns in hospital because of the pain, very traumatic.
School though has completely broken down we had a meeting in March and LEA told the head she had to provide alternative education. Now all he's doing is 1 hour online learning per day, he's bored I'm bored but trying to get him up and out is near on impossible, not that there's anything or anywhere to go where we are, we both need rest bite but not sure where to get it from.
