    I didn't have to wear a brace until 6 weeks post op.

    Now I have to wear one to help get my leg straight.

    Can't wait for the day until I don't have to wear one!

    Good luck to you!! This, too, shall pass. smile

    My understanding is to avoid braces use on tkr. The idea being that one needs to strengthen the knee muscles. The brace prevents that from happening. But, of course, it depends on what your doc says.
