I am almost 8 weeks post of and have been using slip on shoes and/or getting my tennis shoes on with the shoe horn. I would love to put my tennis shoes on and tie them correctly now. I have been doing the pretzel piriformis stretch for weeks while lying down. The last couple days, I sat in a chair with my brace on, crossed my left leg over the right, pulled the laces a bit and tied. I have been feeling it in my butt and a bit in my back. Is this how you all tie your shoes and is this just a little discomfort that my body will get use to or am I doing this too soon or wrong?
Secondly, I want to start shaving my own legs. Doc said o.k. but no advice on how (disadvantage of a male dac lol). I do not do the shower chair because sitting and leaning forward have never worked well for me. To bend my knee, lean forward to trim my toe nails never worked without discomfort either. Any of you have any other innovative ways. I did duct tape a wooden dowel to my razor to make it longer.
