As a result of having received an epidural, several nerves in my cauda equina were damaged, and I now have a paralyzed right leg. I was wondering if there is a device (ie. a float for my foot) that I can wear, to keep my leg from sinking while I swim.
Happy new year to you!!!, this can be a problem when you have one leg that sinks and another that does not.
Have you ever tried a pull buoy held between your legs, would it be possible to hold it between your legs? If you look at my page about equipment you will see what a pull buoy is. But to cut a long story short it is a float you hold between your legs and you are then able to use your arms. I’m reluctant to suggest that you tie any float to your leg due to safety I would not want you to get into any difficulties.
Maybe a woggle which is a tubular float which could be placed under both legs as long as you are able to swim with your hear in swimming horizontally with head in practicing arm action for freestyle.
I hope this has been useful to you, if you have any more questions please get in touch
