Probably sand and cement or dot and dabbed off if itís an old place with brick internal walls

Get a masonary drill bit and do a test hole (easy to fill), I bet itís not a stud wall at all and youíll need to plug and screw your fittings in.

Yes I was a bit surprised too, it is an old house so maybe you are right. We do have some items from the hospital it turns out and one is a seat that goes on the one on the loo, I just found out.

Wait until the mrs is better, take her from behind and where her head sounds solid thatíll be where the studs are.

Unless your in an old house and still have lath and plaster walls and cables in steel conduit, I'm a bit confused by that.


If it's plasterboard you should pick up the screws holding it up which are only under a few mm of plaster, anything behind the board would give such a week pull you would barely notice

This may have happened by now but if not....if she was alright using the bog before the OP she will be fine after, I had a hip job a couple of years ago and I was up walking around the next day, if you still want to fix a handle play it safe and do what has already been said, get a stud/metal detector the type that shows live cables, good luck for the missus .

EDIT
If you don't want to mark the wall use masking tape and remove it when done.

use a mirror and a hammer...... smash a hole in the plasterboard with the hammer till you find a stud then hang the mirror over the hole
