    My issue was returning to a physically active job too quickly, just under two weeks. Though I remember it more as fatigue than surgical pain.

    Glad I could help, and good luck with your decision.

    I agree with Venchka that LL Bean is probably my best bet, as other things from them fit me well. OwenM also mentioned Eddie Bauer, which could also work, but their selection of lightweight synthetic...
