Where to put this???

Didn't know quite where to post this, but I have a question that someone may have the answer to! I had ligament reconstruction on my right wrist, last summer (2010). While trying to open a picle jar, 3 weeks after my ACDF, I tore the scapholunate and triquolunate ligaments. Had to wait for the MRI, due to new fusion, and could 't be near a magnetic field for another 3 weeks... Ended up with 7 pins in my lower hand to hold the bones in place, 5 cast changes in 7 weeks, and 2 of the pins came thru my skin... Ok, pins removed, and now 4 months of therapy for my right hand. It's functional, but I must wear a brace on that hand most of the time.. My ROM is less than half of what it was, but like I say, it's functional and I am very happy with the surgery, as my connective tissue is disintegrating and I understand that without perfect tissue, the outcome will be what it will be.
I've looked online everywhere, and can't find any wrist braces that aren't black or beige. I need one protective bar in it, and would like it to leave fingers open, yet have wrist supported for maybe 5-6". I am so tired of people asking me what I did to my wrist..for like a year now! Is there something that comes in colors, is light weight without a lot of padding and would be good for daily use? I know this seems trivial, but I would really like to look less surgical.
If anyone finds a site or knows of a company that makes this, please let me know! If I was at the store, and had to catch a door, without my brace on, it could un-due this whole surgery... Thanks!


  • If you found what you need in black and beige just paint them to the color you want. They make paint that will stay on anything. Trust me, me and some paint can do some damage, although I am forebidden from painting anything any longer, I just don't stay in the lines anymore, haha.
  • Hey, a good idea!! Why didn't I think of that??? I did email a few sites asking if they had anything like what I am looking for... If I had the cash, I'd start my own line, then go on Shark Tank for more $$ when I needed to expand the business!!
    I read alot of the posts on this site...and you always have good advice...but question....your title is administrator...of what? I don't see anyone else with a title!? :)
