I hardly use the brace at all and am managing to get around the house using one crutch. The sleep pattern isn't really a pattern at all but at least I can cope with the discomfort through the night now. I have to use a wheelchair outdoors as I get tired very quickly but I am starting to see tiny improvements in my muscle strength. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment for me. I really do appreciate it. Have a lovely weekend. xxxDo you feel that leg is getting any stronger or are you still using the brace mostly?
