hey billie,
I think i wrote somewhere else to you that it takes about a couple of weeks for the brace to be ready (i think) how many hours will you have to wear your brace for? i wear mine 23/7. Just add the hours gradually. It took me a few weeks to get all the way up to 23 hours. and sleeping in it isn't to bad either. I started sleeping in it like in the 3rd week that i had it and it wasn't bad at all :) i fell asleep pretty quickly. Most people told me that it's easier sleeping on your back but i feel more comfertable sleeping on my side. (I have a Boston Brace though so i don't know how sleeping will be with the Milwakee. sry)
!Good Luck!

hey! just forgot 2 tell u 1 thing: u won't be used 2 it right away, just give it some time (it took me probably about 3-4 weeks to get used to it) and you'll get used to it pretty soon ;) ;) ;)
