The brace is off......but I still have to wear it for stability reasons, as I have no quads and its still swollen. Also cause of the nerve damage I'm developing an attractive looking foot drop, but as I have trouble bending the knee with out the brace I keep triping over my toes! This is incredibly sexy look for a 22 year old.....but the OS assured me it wasn't permenant and gave me lots of meds for my night pain.

Maybe it'll be off permantly in 6 weeks which is my next appointment, but it better than nothing (though did quite fancy putting it on the bonfire on the 5th!)
