BLOWN ACL w/ DONJOY BRACE ON

SHARE

2 WEEKS AGO I WAS PLAYING BASKETBALL AND COMPLETELY TORN MY ACL.
I HAD PREVOIUSLY INJURED MY KNEE PLAYING FOOTBALL, MY ORTHO SCOPED IT AND SAID I HAD A SMALL TEAR AND IT WAS NOT BAD ENOUGH TO DO ANYTHING WITH IT.
HE GAVE ME A DOYJOY BRACE AND SAID, “IT WILL HOLD YOUR KNEE WHILE PLAYING SPORTS! WELL, IT DID NOT, 2 WEKKS AGO I TOTALLY BLEW MY KNEE, 1OO% ACL TEAR, 75% LCL TEAR, AND I ALSO TORE THE MENICUS ALL DETERMINED BY MRI. NOW IM LOOKING FORWARD TO A TOTAL RECONSTRUCTION.
I NO LONGER HAVE ANY FAITH IN DONJOY.

  1. I don’t know why he put so much faith in a brace. It mainly gives you support and comfort but that is about all. My PT said that it wasn’t a brace that would totally stabilize my knee, like I said before, just give it a little more stability and comfort.
