If compression was recommended by your physician, you should wear them during any activities.

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.
