Does anyone know if the commas in the following sentence are incorrect/ungrammatical? Or is it just a matter of preference? I'm proofreading for something where unnecessary changes are frowned upon, so I don't want to take them out if it's fine as it is.
"... problems with walking, which can lead to the need for walking aids and possibly, eventually, a wheelchair."
Should it be:
"... problems with walking, which can lead to the need for walking aids and possibly eventually a wheelchair."
The sentence, as it stands, has legs.
.... and, possibly eventually, ....
and, maybe eventually, ...
