Knee surgery - jingles, suggestions for recovery and brace welcome!
I injured my left knee skiing in February, and I'm having surgery next week to reconstruct the ACL and the lateral collateral ligament. The LCL surgery is open and has a long incision, and 6 weeks total non-weightbearing. It's going to be tough because I have two daughters in elementary school, and my mare and my daughters' ponies. The horses are boarded right now luckily. Suggestions for recovery would be welcome, as are jingles.
I'm also wondering about suggestions for a custom brace when I start back riding. My surgeon doesn't normally require bracing for the ACL, but the LCL is a more delicate procedure. I've already tried one brace by VQ Orthocare, and there's no way I can ride with it. I've searched the old threads and seen people like the Ossur CTI2, but I'm not sure if they are still making that.
