I could have sworn the surgery bed bit was in the first chapter when he was investigating Two Face.
Unless I have a special version of the book in my hands with the chapters twisted, it's not. And the surgery being in the first chapter makes no sense as he gets demolished by Mutant leader after he beats Two Face.

And, I don't see it as neglect, I see it as symbolism. The brace is used by Bruce to quickly become Batman, a quick fix. Batman was a quick fix for Bruce to conceal his pain instead of moving on. It's discarded and forgotten as Bruce learns to live as Bruce Wayne instead of Batman.
I wonder if Bane was a gentleman and let him keep his braces all through his prison stint.
