Compression suit necessary? (photos)
Doctor Answers 3
Lower body lift - is the compression garment necessary?
- I am sorry you had to go to the ER -
- Emergency staff are always trained to cut off clothes....sorry they cut off your expensive garment -
- It sounds as though it was too tight for you.
- If you were my patient, I would want you to at least have a jumpsuit or binder - not too tight.
- But the only person you should rely on is your own surgeon.
- You have just had surgery and a complication - let your own surgeon be your guide to recovery.
