You haven't Shade !! I think you are a great girl helping so many out here !!
To Sally W., you can't always choose in life, sometimes whatever you do and even if you held your head up high you get striked again and again. Maybe then it isn't that easy to make best out of everyhting. This is a forum about knees and we pick what we like. The most important is though that we support each other.
I though would prefer make things easier if I can.

Does anyone have any suggestions for driving in your immobilizer?  I think I'm in mine for the long run and the steel bar sticking in the back of my thigh and trying to wedge my foot in to put my heel at the top of the gas pedal really stinks.  Right foot on the gas, left foot on the brake.  Thank goodness I don't have a stick shift!!!

Careful with driving with an immobilizer on.  Most insurance companies will not cover you if you have an accident with any type of brace or cast on and also....the accident will automatically be considered to be your fault even if undoubtable someone else caused it just because you have some kind of a brace on. 

Just be extra careful!!!!
