Bad Balance on lead leg :S

Hi guys

So i practise Muay Thai but i was unlucky enough to have had a stroke whilst in the womb so im now hemiplegic (basically means it feels like i have been given a dead arm and leg on the left side at all times) but it also means my left leg balance is AWFUL. If im left standing on it i'll stumble after 1-2-secs MAX.

Now im fine with the punchs, clinchs and knees/elbows but i cannot for the life of me perform a mid to high roundhouse

Can anyone offer an tips to perform this technique to someone who has bad balance with their lead leg and has trouble getting it high as a result? Any work arounds? I've tried unorthodox but my left leg isnt powerful enough.

Im practising balancing techniques atm but if anyone could offer any tips etc that would be great

a guy from my dojo also has the same kind of condition as you, basicly he thai kicks when trying to preform a high kick to some extent, enough to be able to spin himself around to plant your leading foot back.
