The brace it's ok, I thought was uncomfortable but apparently was the metal inside my leg that is uncomfortable😑 I only remove it after they took out the stitches to clean with wipes my leg, for shower I covered the brace with plastic, it's very important to follow dr instructions, I didn't move from bed for the first 20 days, not even to go toilet, I had to use a commode and leave my leg in bed while sitting next to it. They pull all the muscle in my leg to be able to put in the metal and it was extremely painful to walk in crutches, even to sit in a chair or anything else, my leg hanging was so painful, unbearable. Yours is gonna be better, your leg only has fat(if anything) at this stage, the muscle is gone. So you probably can use crutches earlier than me, I didn't manage to let my leg hang until day 15. Don't you worry, you gonna be fine.
