The physio will give you one. Is there no chance you could see her sooner?

Misdee - you can have my old one if you like - and you dont mind a 2nd hand one. I'll find a link to show you what it's like. I got it from my physio at the hospital when I had spd with dd2.

bit like this

It helped for the days I had to work / walk. I also had crutches as well which I used from time to time.

Mine was a 'large-extra large' and has lots of velcro to adjust the size. I'm a 16. If you like I'll dig it out and see if I think it will be big enough and post again later
