Since my TKR eleven days ago my compression stockings have been tight especially on the operated knee. They were remeasured in hospital and are the correct size. On the swollen knee the top rolls over and digs a band into the knee making it more uncomfortable than it already is. I have just taken them off for half an hour and it's bliss.There is a deep mark round my keg, just under the knee, where the stocking was digging in. Surely this is not good for circulation.
Has anyone else had this problem? I have to keep them on for over four weeks more yet.
