Q&A — Compression Hose

Q: I had knee surgery, and was wondering when can I stop wearing my compression socks?

A: If you are ambulatory and in good health, with no history of blood clots, 4 weeks should be ample. But of course, check with your orthopedic surgeon, as he may want you in them longer.
