I got a plastic/velcro dealie after my second back surgery. They screwed L-5 to L4, then 3 years later screwed them both to S-1. At the post-op follow 2 weeks after the second surgery the doctor told me I didn't need it anymore. Maybe your back isn't telling you you need a brace: maybe it's saying something else.

I second the Koolbak recommendation. Their wader belt has a couple of d-rings on the back of the belt. They have some accessories you can add, like net holsters and wading staff holsters. I've been using one for five or six years and the durability is excellent.

Just a thought Emil, maybe your doc could write you a script for one and you can have it custom fitted for your needs and build.

Best case scenario, the insurance company picks up the tab, at least that was how it worked for my knee brace.

Good luck!

Massage is another wonderful therapy, if done correctly. In between my 2 operations, I went to our county fair. "Sure, I'd like a free massage." I've had Asian massages before. Didn't remember some details. He worked really hard trying to get those two vertebrae to bend. Ouch.
The actual truth is, I should have been doing PT regularly and strengthening my core.

I recently purchased the following by Simms:

I have yet to use it...but this feels "pretty pretty good" when standing. Feels odd when sitting down.​
More reviews to follow in the April timeframe.​
