The doc reccomended a Don Joy brace that wraps around all funky and has a rigid strap that restricts movement all together in the necessary areas. It has not arrived yet, but it looks like something that a guy will only want to use as a temporary assistant to healing and not a permenant "solution". If you like, I can get you the exact specs. within the next couple of days so that you can ask your doctor.
I figured it's probably a good thing to have on hand for other stuff too, like football or snowmobiling. (Quite possibly the second and third greatest forms of recreation respectively)
Anyway, thanks for replying.
