    How does it feel?

    Hi you all.

    I was just wondering, how does having a brace on ya feel? Some people said it's very uncomfortable, especially around the stomach area

    Yeah,
    it feels very uncomfortable! For me it felt uncomforable around the arms beause it was digging in to them.

    It is uncomfortable but it becomes second nature after a week or so. I used to get a rash under my left arm because that was where the brace went up. When my doctor changed the time to 24/7 it was annoying but I forgot I was wearing it most of the time. Sometimes I would have to feel my stomach/back to see if I was still wearing it. I guess what I am trying to say it although it may be uncomfortable your body some how seems to get used to it and make it feel like you aren't wearing it when you really are. Good Luck!
