Dear Doctors I am having a bimax surgery. It's a five hours long procedure. I am afraid of forming blood clots and having a heart attack or embolism. How efficient are compression stocking if I wear them during and after the surgery? This is my fourth general anaesthesia surgery. Everything was fine with the last three. But none of the previous surgeries lasted five hours (only 2 hours) I am 28 years old, my weight is normal, I don't smoke, I don't drink, I don't take birth control pills. Thank You
