AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED COMPRESSION
Like any surgery, vein surgery includes a recovery period. The recovery period comes with some risks of complications. After a surgery, patients may want to rest more than normal to help their body heal and recover, but the immobility can increase the risk of blood clots and dangerous deep vein thrombosis, especially in a patient who has experienced vein surgery. Many physicians will recommend wearing compression stockings during recovery.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Relieve and Prevent Swelling
Compression stockings are typically used after vein surgery. Compression can help a patient recovering from vein surgery in multiple ways. Most specifically, compression will help to relieve much of the pain and swelling that accompanies vein surgery. The increase in blood circulation from wearing compression will help to prevent dangerous conditions such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Finally, compression can help to prevent the legs from bruising due to the surgery.
