I have swelling in those areas.
Should compression bandages be worn over your knees, legs, and feet day or night, or both?

Graduated compression is best.
Best way to utilize compression stockings
Appropriate length of graduated medical compression stockings - mid calf, knee, thigh or higher by VenaSmart
You can wear graduated compression stockings as much as you like - some only wear them when they are on their feet or sit at work (8-10 hours a day) and others, like me, wear them all the time, taking them off when i shower twice a day and promptly wear them again - even during sleep. Find what works for you !
What is important is to wear medical grade graduated compression stockings. I recommend microfiber graduated medical compression stcokings (20-30 mm Hg) by VenaSmart. They are affordable, durable and don't allow you to overheat. Overheating is a major deterrent for consistent wearing of stockings, especially in parts of the U.S. that are very warm (Florida, Carolinas, California, Nevada, Arizona).
