I don’t know how even someone who has not had this surgery can get them on by themselves!!!I still say...if you can get the socks on, yourself, without excruciating pain...you should be dismissed from wearing them.
The hospital sent me home with a handy doodad that you put the sock in the end of a big tube, then put your foot on the other end and pull the ropes attached to the tube and it gets us over your foot and up your ankle a little. View attachment 69421

It worked pretty good for me as long as I used the hospital socks and not the pharmacy ones. They were softer and easier to get on the tube. I got that package too, and the grabber was handy when I dropped something and was flat on my back!How did you find that it worked? I tried that doodad at the hospital. Maybe I wasn't doing it right, but it still put a whole lot of torque on my knee. They offered me that thing, a shoe horn that was so long it looked like a sword, and a grabber thing as a package deal. I passed...
