Post op brace for a small woman
« on: June 30, 2018, 02:07:16 AM »
Hello all!
Iím currently 10 days post op from Fulkerson Osteotomy and locked in the dreaded post op brace. Itís a DonJoy xact rom brace.  I hate this brace.  I am only 5ft tall and it just doesnít fit right. The strap that needs to be tightest goes right over mynlarge incision on my shin. The other middle strap pushes into my kneecap when I stand because the brace starts to slide down. Thereís no way that I am going to be able to walk in this brace when
Cleared to do so.  OS said to love with it basically but I figure if Iím gonna be ina brace 6-8 weeks I need something that is going to help fuel my recovery not hinder it. Anyways I wanted to see if anyone else had an issue like this and if you had any recommendations of a different brand I could get that may possibly fit my smaller stature!
