Ruptured left quad - Only Foam Knee Brace?
« on: August 04, 2019, 10:17:24 AM »
Complete rupture of left quad. Surgery performed 2 days ago (2 days after rupture occurred, falling down stairs).

Only given flimsy FOAM knee brace???

I'm in Canada.

I see everyone here were given proper knee braces.

Should I complain and get one, or will the foam brace be enough?

Not supposed to bend knee for 3 months.

Hi - Interesting question - never heard in all these years of a foam brace being fitted - first reaction - would not be strong enough-  I would be asking the surgeon - have you seen this type of injury before - a very rare trauma -
