Stockings are a good idea following the procedure so that post-procedural pain and swelling can be controlled. In most cases, as long as a patient wears the stockings daily, they may return to normal activities immediately. Most physicians have patients wear stockings for at least the first week, but sometimes up to 2 or more depending on their progress.

It varies depending on the treating physician. However, it usually is between one to two weeks. They help by extrinsically compressing the ablated vein and minimizing a recurrence due to the vein reopening. They also help to minimize superficial thrombophlebitis.

Usually about two weeks. They usually make patients feel better while recovering and if a person experiences delayed pain after the procedure, graded compression stockings help.

You should wear compression stockings for at least 15 days after the procedure. The results are better and the chances of failure are less.

After endovenous laser ablation compression stockings should be worn for about 2 weeks. I tell them to wear them as much as possible and that they can be removed for exercise or showering. They help by reducing swelling and bruising and improving venous return. Many patients just feel more comfortable wearing the stockings after the procedure.

I have my patients wear their stockings for only 1 weeks after ablation. but can be doing almost all normal activities during that whole time.some patients prefer to wear them a few more weeks for comfort reasons.

The stockings maintain compression on the treated vein to prevent it from opening back up, as well as reducing swelling, bruising and providing support and protection to the limb as healing progresses.
