Garter Belt

I need one.  To hold this stupid brace up.

+$100 for an immobilization brace that only works as long as I don't move.  No matter how tight I strap it, the instant I have to walk it starts loosening up and sliding down.  By the time I get to the bathroom the bottom is resting down near my ankle and the only reason my knee isn't bending is that I'm consciously working at keeping it straight.  It even shifts when I'm sleeping at night. 

It's annoying enough that I'm thinking of asking the orthopedic surgeon to put a cast on it.  I think it would be easier to crutch around and deal with showering with my leg in a trash bag than the way it is now. 


  1. So I guess that making a cast out of straw and chicken waste is out of the question.
    But, but, but, its organic!!!

    Take care, catch up on some reading.

  2. In my experience, most of those braces 'don't'... sigh

  3. @John, NFO, Guffaw - Ace bandage to the rescue.
