    get instead of getting. I would use which instead of that since it is not a restrictive clause. I am now losing the strength of my lower legs which makes it difficult to get the toilet.

    It's a bit flowery and can be pruned to say the same thing ⤵️

    I'm losing the strength in my legs so mobility is difficult.

    No need to mention the toilet.

    No - and it's very badly phrased.

    I am losing strength in my lower legs, which makes it difficult to do many things, including getting to the toilet.

    It's awkward.  The reader doesn't need to know about toilet use, the sentence is talking about mobility.
