L5-S1 ALIF on 7/14. Before surgery, they had me put on a pair of stockings that cover my feet up to my upper thigh. They are to prevent blood clots.
At discharge I was told to wear them for 6 weeks. I am allowed to leave them off while washing them for a few hours at a time.
Did anyone else have these things? I want to be a good boy, but they are uncomfortable and I can't imagine keeping them for 6 weeks.
