How long should I wear compression socks after surgery?
Doctor Answers 2
Different doctors different recommendations
Generally, I recommend wearing the garments for 24 to 48 hours continuously. After that, you can wear them on and off for the next two weeks.
Please follow your specific surgeon's instructions.
Best of luck,
