Fingering suggestion: Beethoven Waldstein sonata

Have you ever struggled with managing this passage in the Waldstein? The fingering suggested in measure 24 is extremely stretchy – B D G B D using 1 2 3 4 5. Particularly the 2-3 over a perfect fourth feels very open. Instead, one can use the left hand to help out, with the redistribution suggested. With thanks as always to Edna Golandsky and John Bloomfield!
