Lower leg plaster cast AND knee brace??
« on: February 25, 2015, 08:04:05 PM »
Has anyone had a plaster cast and a knee brace at the same time? I am due a supramalleolar derotation osteotomy (at the ankle) along with a TTT, MPFL reconstruction and recession trochleoplasty at the same time. I assume this will be covered at my pre-op with my OS but was just wondering if anyone has had this before? And if so, how it works?! I wondered if I might just not have a brace on but seems like quite a lot of surgery to have no brace around the knee.

Any info would be much appreciated!

They may put you in a full cast with hinges on that!
I saw someone with a cast like that a couple of years ago
When I was in hospital,
She had a ankle break & ruptured knee ligaments.

Hope all goes well
