Difficult to give the best answer without knowing all of your clinical history. You should ask your MD.

I would follow the advice of your physician who has you wearing them since he/she knows your past medical history.

The answer depends on how long it has been since the pulmonary embolism. If it is within one year, then I would recommend yes. If greater than one year, then the increased venous flow and muscle contraction during exercise should essentially do what the stockings do.

In general, and especially if a pulmonary embolism resulted from a lower extremity venous thrombosis, the more the hose are worn the better. The indications which help modify this general statement are many, including other risk factors, the possible damage
a previous venous thrombosis has caused, tendency to leg swelling, and others.
