Default Re: New mum with brace questions

Hi. My son was fitted with a brace when he was 3 after having growth rod surgery. From being cast to brace arriving took two days! He's a patient at GOSH but I don't see why that would make a difference.

He wore ordinary vests but maybe inside out? I can't quite remember - sorry! He ended up ditching the vest & wore the brace over his t-shirt/top (even at school) as he got so hot.

His head teacher explained to each class at his school why Jake was wearing a brace & he was happy to answer questions. Think he was quite proud of it!

He's 8 now & was told after surgery in April that he doesn't need to wear it if he doesn't want to. Different surgeon, different ideas I think.
