... Hi Hollywood, Saw the PA today. She said that the joint feels solid and secure. They are putting the lacing brace underneath the boot and then wear the boot over it. My friend, Judy, was not impressed with the PA either. She's gonna call tomorrow and see if we can get in with the doctor next week instead of the PA. The PA didn't make any comments about me wearing the... (160 replies)
