Thank you all for the information and advice. I have dealt with Kaiser on different occasions for different reasons and it's always a hassle. Plus, going in for the several appointments I will need to make this happen through my insurance will be a problem and what I need sounds very simple and it is proving not to be so simple. I have been standing from time to time with a board with several rolls of gauze wrapped around it on each leg...but it's not something I can do on my own and that is what has been the biggest issue. So far my legs have been fine being fully starightened. I have done this regularly. My Internet searches do not give me the results or at least the information I need so that's why I was throwing out there to see if anyone has information of experience with this. Again, thank you for the information. I will consider what you all have said
