Default Knee Brace??

do you think it would be approperate to wear a knee brace in the dining room if it is hanging out...on the one formal night it wont be and it will be mostly coverd on the other but i am not sure if it would be approperate on the other nights. I can walk without it just very uncomftorably and i am wondering aobut waht people would think with me in it in a fancy dining room!!! I did wear it to a funeral and i got a bunch of strange looks but i will probibaly be getting a new one that is all metally or one that is really bulky tommrow...any thoughts???!!!!????

ok...i tore my mcl in november, so when i do pshyical activity i have to wear a knee brace, total pain in the ass. i don't think you would like offend anyone if you wore it and yeah it is totally uncomfortable. i mean if wearing a knee brace is what keeps your knee in place/intact, then you have to wear wheter others find it appropriate or not!

If you need it, people should and have no choice but to accept it. You should definitely wear it if it's necessary.

Its really no different then going to formal night in a wheel chair or on crutches. Its a health issue not a fashion issue. Have a great time.

A knee brace is like a person in a wheel chair, or a person who is on crutches.. its a needed thing to help a person move around more freely.. go for it I say anways you might get some pitty from a hot worker or vactioner on board

yea i tore my acl from playing soccer 4 years ago this summer...and i hav to wear a brace. And finally this past december i got surgery and in january it was my sweet 16 so under my dress i had to wear a brace...it wasnt that bad cuz everyone ignored it. But when i wore it to other places and ppl looked--i know that theyre not thinking lik omg y is she wearing that here...thats inappropriate--theyre just thinking what happened--and alot of times if theyre older ppl they dont expect kids to be having stuff lik that ...but i wouldnt worry about it --who cares what people think...especially something that concerns ur health

No one will make fun of you if you wear it. I have CP and on the ship, no one made fun of me.
