Re: Anyone else have to wear the tight hospital

Apparently a doctors preference from what I've researched. I promised myself that I would follow post-op instructions...so I'm going to wear them, even if I hate it. I guess it gives me a fun milestone to look forward to.

I had to wear them for 4 weeks. DVT is really serious, so I think it is worth following your doctor's advice. It seems pretty variable as to what the recommendation is.

Re: Anyone else have to wear the tight hospital stockings

those stockings are very important.if u lay in the bed for a considerable amount of time you could get a bloot clot.but they really do help very tired legs.i have about 4 pairs (with no holes at toes)that i wear to work.i wait tables.it will help with vericose veins too.

Yes, waking up to toes poking out of the hole is a regular occurrence. *sigh* 6 more days!

5 more days until I get to take these suckers off and on my birthday to boot!! Who needs birthday cake, gifts, etc.... I'll be happy to have leg freedom, especially with the newly added night sweats.
