Post-Op Compression Socks
I just had the squeezy things on my legs in the hospital. I didn't have any compression socks at home.
I'm not a doctor and do not play one on TV, blah blah blah. I've done a lot of research on vitamins and stuff and am happy to share my research with you. Please don't consider it medical advice and don't bother trying to sue me for giving you medical advice. I am pretty much judgment-proof. Check out my blog.
I just had them on during surgery, they must have been taken off while I was in the recovery room because once I was moved to my regular hospital room they were off. I had on normal non-skid socks after. I was up and walking around within a few hours though, most have you take them off once you are moving. I think if you're at higher risk for blood clots they may have you wear them longer (clotting disorders, heart issues, over a certain age, level of activity, etc).
