When I get up in the morning, before I get out of bed, I get one of my knee compression bandages and slip it on my right knee. It makes getting around a bit easier. However, wearing it all day seemed to cause my knee to hurt worse at the end of the day. I think it’s because the compression bandage doesn’t prevent the lower leg from going too far forward or too far back, but I digress.
Got up this morning, put on the compression bandage, got the moggies fed and watered, Keito given his insulin injection. Time for me to use all the hot water for a change aka got a shower. Walked around in terry robe, no knee compression bandage. After about an hour, I found myself holding doorways and leaning on a wall. Looked at my knee, and saw it was a bit puffy.
Back to the mid-thigh to mid-calf leg/knee brace. Yeah, knee feels better, but I feel a bit chilly, as the brace is worn over leggings. Leggings aren’t the warmest thing to be wearing in cold rainy weather.
Now I know for sure. When at all possible, put the big rig on.
