Is it OK to take off my compression stocking for a few hours a day post vein stripping surgery?
My surgeon told me to wear it 24hrs a day for 4 weeks then at night for another 2 weeks. I had my veins stripped in one leg 10 days ago, healing is going well, and the last couple days I've been removing my sock for 1-2 hrs in the afternoon and lying down outside or walking around to air it. Can new veins develop if I do this? Would it be risky if I stopped wearing it during the day on the 3rd week instead of the 4th? (I'm going on holiday soon and would prefer not to wear it in the day).Thanks!
