It is equally important that you get out of bed and walk a short ways several times a day. Even a trip to the bathroom, out to the kitchen or around the room is fine. Walking is the best way to get the circulation going in your legs.
Every surgeon has a different preference and patient conditions change too.
You have to ask your surgeon what is right for you - and explain that you cannot find what s/he recommended.
I ask my patients to get 20-30 mm Hg for deep venous support and to wear them for 2 weeks, until after the two peaks of deep vein thrombosis risk.
Here’s hoping you find this helpful. Have a great day!
