If they do not feel excessively tight, you should wear them.

Yes ok to use the stocking in most cases. See your provider however, to evaluate the cause of the swelling.
You can do better with stockings as well with a graded compression stocking. Ask your provider.

If you apply the hose before you get out of bed in the morning it will control your swelling better. I would also be concerned as to the amount of swelling and would advise you follow up with your surgeon.

You can put your TED stockings, but make sure to have your doctor looking at your legs making sure you have not developed blood clots.

First elevate your legs above your heart over night. Then put the stockings on as soon as your get up from sleep before your legs swell and while the swelling is the least. Wear the stockings as long as necessary.
