A temporary fix
Leah had arthroscopic right knee surgery in 2009. It showed that her meniscus, the cartilage that cushions the knee, was gone.
“They look in it and there was nothing left. It was worn,” she recalls. “So they drilled up into my thigh bone to make it bleed and seep and create a meniscus. I was non-weight-bearing for six weeks with a one-year-old, working full-time, running a home.”
It gave Leah relief for a while, but eventually the pain returned.
Before Leah found out about Heated Knee Brace, she waited, and prayed that “I knew there would be something better.”
For the next few years, Leah lived with aching, throbbing pain, and was unable to walk without a pronounced limp.
“It's one of those things you deal with it because you don't have a choice,” Leah says.
“After 16 years of marriage, I became a single mom of three teens working full time, and you do what you have to do. You have to take care of your family.”
