    Ankle Braces For Good Foot post PTTD

    I need advice. Going on a trip with hubby to Maine in 3 weeks. I am 10 months post op PTTD. My ankle is pretty good but I will not be out taking any hikes. My problem is my good ankle is collapsing. I will not postpone this trip but need some pain relief (beside my boot which I am taking just in case). I was thinking about the flexible ankle braces and was wondering if anyone had any comments on them. I just don't have the heart to tell my husband my other ankle is hurting so much until after this trip. Any help would be appreciated.

    I loved my flexible ankle supports. I got a black lace-up one from a medical supply place and one from a sporting goods store. The lace-up one was much stronger and provided much more support.... made out of something that looks like canvas. Protect that good ankle too!

    Defintely, lace-up braces. The kind with a hard support in the sides, inside of a hiking boot, say, really solid support.
