    I'm doing ok, have to go back to the orthopedic surgeon in three weeks, he wants more xrays. But this brace is bulky and hot, be glad when that comes off, but may be in it for 8 weeks. I can take it off to shower but other than that I am supposed to leave it on. Penny came over and got my ring off, the hand was swollen if I couldn't get it off they would have cut it off. She has a way the nurses take rings off with dental floss, so she got it off no problem. The swelling has gone down but I'm not putting the ring back on until I'm out of this brace

    Glad Penny was there to help you with the ring, I haven't heard about the floss technique, good to know. Hope you heal quickly and completely.
