One size

I bought a knee brace today. It has metal hinges and wraps around, rather than slipping over the foot. I'm having a hard time reaching my foot without hurting my knee. Plus, you know, fat thighs just make things like a slip over knee brace roll down.

So anyway. Yeah. Knee brace. I was hoping it would help get me back out walking sooner. Blah. Just as I feared, the damn thing does. not. fit. I can stretch the lower (below knee) band tight enough to overlap but the top one is several inches from meeting, much less overlapping. Swelling and fat. The very things that contribute to my knees being so screwed up I can't walk keep me from wearing a knee brace that might help.

I need to lose weight in hopes I'll be able to exercise in order to lose weight.

    You can make a connector piece to make it fit. My Dr. Has had me make a piece to make mine larger before emoticon

    My husband has the same kind of brace. He's pretty heavy and short, which makes for "stocky" legs. His doctor measured him and then ordered it. His fits really well. Where did you get yours?

    Take care of yourself!!!
