Comment : Re: Are you in a zimmerman brace?
Posted by Ann_P on Thu 3:16pm 29 July 2004


Hi Merella,
While I was waiting for surgery I was in a knee brace similar to what you may have:

http://www.corflex.com/lower-frameset-1.html
click on "knee" and see the brace called Marathon Compression Knee Immobilizer.

After surgery they were going to put me back in this, but I asked for a hinged brace instead.

Telescoping Cool TROM (it's summer here! 30 C frequently!)

However, I am not allowed to use the hinged feature yet. I have to keep it ON and STRAIGHT at all times unless I'm using the CPM machine. Yes, I have to take a shower with a plastic bag.

Going out to dinner tonight - girls' night out!!!!!!!!!!! My first trip out since before the accident. Might even have a small beer!
