Thank you for your question.
It is important that you consult with your doctor with any questions or concerns you may have, as each surgeon has different post operative protocols. If your doctor recommended you keep the compression garment on longer than the 20th, then I would definitely listen to his advice and keep it on. We recommend keeping the compression garment on for up to 4 weeks for optimal results. I hope this helps!
Good luck in your recovery!
